Andy Hardie-Brown

Global Partner + Global COO


Andy Hardie-Brown

Andy Hardie-Brown is the co-architect of one of the fastest growing public relations and public affairs agencies with a global platform. His background in building fast-growth, entrepreneurial companies – and 30 years of senior-level management experience in marketing services firms – has helped Allison+Partners gain recognition as a compelling alternative to the large, multinational-owned players. Today the agency is recognized as a business partner that is uniquely suited to respond to client needs at the pace which dynamic marketplaces demand. Under his strategic approach to M&A and talent acquisition, Allison+Partners has grown to twenty five offices within the past fifteen years. As a result, his vision of creating a world class communications firm that addresses the need for a vibrant alternative to the monolithic, multinational-owned PR and PA agencies and small, single geography firms has become a reality.

Prior to co-founding Allison+Partners, Andy was COO of Connors Communications, a PR firm specializing in emerging technology, and Senior Vice President of Citigate Communications, a leading global communications agency. Earlier in his career he was the founder of Greenfield Group, a London-based marketing services agency that after five years of rapid growth was acquired by a European publicly traded holding company.
