ATLANTA and BERLIN (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
ATLANTA and BERLIN, April 9, 2013: Germany-based foreign direct investment advisory firm Terrain Consulting is pleased to announce that it has joined Conway Data Inc. (CDI), an international publishing, advisory and association management company headquartered in Atlanta, Ga. This follows CDI’s recent acquisitions of The PONT Group, a New York-based public relations and marketing firm specializing in economic development, and Red Hot Locations, a London-based provider of foreign direct investment training and events.
This combination creates the world’s most comprehensive offering of services for all topics related to foreign direct investment (FDI), both for corporations planning international expansion as well as for government investment promotion agencies around the world. Terrain will continue to operate as an independent company within the CDI group and will coordinate closely with CDI’s other divisions to offer a fully integrated service to clients and to leverage the group’s extensive competencies and international presence.
“Terrain’s capabilities in location advisory, site selection, FDI strategy and lead generation integrate seamlessly with Conway Data’s suite of products and services,” said Adam Jones-Kelley, managing director of Conway Data. “Terrain’s exceptional track record and reputation for quality advisory will enhance our ability to deliver a world-class service and results to companies and governments worldwide.”
Terrain’s Managing Director Andreas Dressler added, “Becoming part of Conway Data provides us with global reach and significantly strengthens the level of support we can provide in all areas of foreign direct investment. This creates tremendous opportunities for our clients and employees and we are thrilled to be part of the Conway Data group.”
