Rosenberg Strategic Communications: Trusted communication advisors in special situations

Where run-of-the-mill business ends and uncertainty begins, we are there to guide you.
Our mission: Rosenberg Strategic Communications stands with you side-by-side in mission-critical situations. We support companies during significant changes and unforeseen events: initial public offerings (IPOs), mergers and acquisitions (M&A), crises, management changes, general changes, restructuring, start-ups or shareholder changes.

In situations critical to success going beyond normal daily business, we are on hand to offer appropriate solutions:

M&A-Communication

Merger and acquisition (M&A) processes need specialist knowledge in communication; knowledge, experience and Human Resources are essential.

Capital Market Communication

The valuation of a listed company is subject to a considerable number of possible fluctuations.

Crisis Communication & Issue Management

Crises not only cause great economic damage to a company, but also to its reputation.

Restructuring/Turnarounds

Turnarounds, restructurings or insolvencies are processes commonly generating negative responses among both external and internal target groups.

Change Communication

While it’s true that change processes represent considerable opportunities for a company, one cannot ignore the risks.

Reorganisation MarCom and UK

As experienced consultants and experts, we support your company in reorganising and optimising marketing and communication strategies.

Social-Media-Reputation-Recovery

Around 66 million people in Germany use social media in some form or other. What companies have built up over decades in terms of reputation can now be permanently damaged by a mere single ‘tweet’ or post on Facebook.

Sustainability & ESG communication

Less and less often are companies being evaluated and measured on the basis of hard financial indicators.

We set the industry standard: our team at Rosenberg Strategic Communications consists of management consultants, lawyers, investment bankers, marketing and digital experts, journalists and experienced media managers:
