Agusta Westland

Agusta Westland

AgustaWestland, a defense contractor based in Europe, enlisted our services to help compete for the extremely high-profile contract to provide the White House with a new “Marine One,” the president’s personal helicopter. This company was attacked on almost a daily basis by a U.S.-based competitor that mobilized members of Congress, third-party organizations and analysts in a widespread campaign based on seeding mistrust of international bidders. We executed a dual-message communications campaign that highlighted the deep American roots of the company and relentlessly called attention to the technical superiority of our client’s aircraft. AgustaWestland won the contract.

Christian and his team impressed me with their ability to balance grace and tenacity in guiding us through a challenging time. So I didn’t hesitate to call on them again for advice and PR management. Their efforts continue to strengthen UM Holdings companies.
