Notwithstanding the current N. Sea crude oil crisis Aspectus – a marketing services agency which operates in the energy, engineering, financial services and technology sectors – today formally opens a new office in Aberdeen to support its ‘growing oil and gas client base..
Despite the recent ‘precipitous drop’ in oil prices driven by a global glut in supply, the company has decided that the timing is right to strengthen its foothold in the market.
Aspectus has been active in the oil and gas industry for a number years, operating from its bases in London, Houston and Singapore.
Alastair Turner, Chief Executive, Aspectus, explained: “We understand that in today’s challenging environment, justifying spend on communications is incredibly tough. That’s why at Aspectus we don’t bill for time, we sell business outcomes and charge for the results achieved.
“Furthermore, we take the risk out of investment in PR by offering performance-related campaigns. We believe we can make a measurable difference to our clients’ businesses; so much so that we’re willing to put our money where our mouth is.”
Megain Buchan has been appointed as account manager to lead the company’s Aberdeen operation, having previously worked for oilfield service companies in Houston and Kuala Lumpur.
