NEW YORK and SYDNEY, March 12, 2019 — Teneo, the global CEO advisory firm, is very pleased to announce that it has acquired Quay Advisers, a leading strategic communications and investor relations advisory company based in Sydney, Australia.
Quay Advisers was founded in 2016 and has provided counsel to ASX listed companies and private entities, specializing in the financial services, property, retail, agricultural, leisure, oil, gas and energy sectors.
John Hurst, the co-founder of Quay Advisers, will join Teneo as a Senior Managing Director. He was previously the Managing Director at Cannings Corporate Communications. John has more than 20 years’ experience in business, finance and political reporting and commentary with The Australian Financial Review, including five years as Managing Editor.
The acquisition of Quay Advisers follows the opening of Teneo’s office in Sydney last year along with the appointment in September 2018 of Emily Blyth as Managing Director.
