Consultancy partner Enrica Corzani (pictured), who will divide her time between the London and Italian offices, heads the new office.
Manss says that the Italian outpost will initially be a ‘representative office’, with the creative work driven from the London studio. There are currently no staff in place there, though it is hoped clients will be served directly from the Italian office from next year.
‘The plan is to have a proper studio,’ says consultancy founder Thomas Manss. ‘The workload is increasing with longstanding clients – which is down to Enrica – I think clients find it much easier if they have someone who speaks Italian.’
Thomas Manss & Company, which already has offices in Berlin, Brazil, and London, hopes the office will ‘serve Italian clients with an international outlook as well as international enterprises who wish to adapt their communication to Italian audiences.’
Manss adds, ‘Over the last couple of years we have acquired many more clients in Italy and really this is to show them our commitment, but also making our lives a bit easier.’
