ING and architecture PR specialist Stratton & Reekie are to merge.

In April, Amanda Reekie and her staff will move into ING’s Shoreditch headquarters and the combined business will trade under the ING name.

Reekie will take on the role of senior consultant at ING and look to expand its position as a PR consultant for companies in the property, construction, architecture and related built-environment sectors.

Tony Danaher, executive chairman of ING, said: “The progress made in the work of developers, investors, architects and city managers, in response to advances in technology, the environment and branding, have made a profound impact on how we shape our buildings, neighbourhoods and cities. Amanda and her team have had a ringside seat to the process. We look forward to bringing their expertise to ING.”

Leanne Tritton, founder and managing director at ING, said: “Amanda Reekie founded Stratton & Reekie in 1985 and I have always looked up to her as a pioneer in communications for the architecture industry. I’m absolutely delighted that Amanda and her team have decided to join forces with ING, bringing with them over 30 years of experience.

“This new arrangement means both firms can offer their clients an enhanced range of services, as well as the chance  to work with one of the most expert teams to be found anywhere in the built environment and property sector.”

Amanda Reekie, co-founder and director at Stratton & Reekie, said: “Pioneering never stops. The practice of architecture is constantly evolving as are the communication channels available. The coming together of Stratton & Reekie with ING will provide access to an unparalleled depth and breadth of expertise coupled with a dynamic and creative team who are committed to continually refining and progressing the way that architects communicate. I am very excited by the opportunities that our merger presents.”
