Agencies Cutting Ties with Saudi Arabia

by | Oct 13, 2018

The Harbour Group, a public relations and communications firm headquartered in Washington, D.C., has ended its $80K per month contract with Saudi Arabia. The break was caused by the disappearance and alleged murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, Harbour Group managing director Richard Mintz told The New York Times. The Harbour Group helps foreign companies investing in the US by providing strategic communications support and managing political risk around acquisitions of US assets.

WPP’s Glover Park Group and BGR Government Affairs have also severed ties with Saudi Arabia. The Glover Park Group’s account was $150K per month and BGR Government Affairs was $80K per month as reported by Odwyers.

In an other local response to Khashoggi’s disappearance, AOL co-founder and DC-based Chairman and CEO of Revolution Steve Case decided to distance himself from Saudi Arabia and not attend the upcoming the Future Investment Initiative conference in Riyadh.
