05 Jan CG Life and MC Services Form US-EU Strategic Partnership
Leading European and U.S. Life Science Communications Agencies Combine Forces to Deliver Integrated International Market Access
CHICAGO, DÜSSELDORF, MUNICH and SAN DIEGO—January 5, 2023—CG Life, an integrated digital marketing and public relations agency supporting life science and healthcare companies, and MC Services AG, a major European public relations and investor relations firm with a similar life sciences focus, announced today a strategic partnership between the agencies. The two companies have created an integrated service platform for biotech and pharmaceutical companies to extend their reach and access more easily to capital, talent, and business audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. Both firms will remain fully and legally independent.
For MC Services, this partnership provides an industry-respected gateway for accessing marketing, branding, digital marketing, public relations, and advertising capabilities in the U.S. And as CG Life’s clients increasingly request global capabilities across PR, branding, paid media, and more, CG Life will be able to activate a highly experienced communications and investor relations team in Europe and in Germany, in particular—the largest European healthcare market.“
“Accessing the U.S. market is vital for the European biopharma sector, and we have worked for many years to better connect our clients to the life science ecosystem in the States,” said Raimund Gabriel, Managing Partner of MC Services. “We are excited to continue that mission by establishing a strategic alliance with CG Life, a like-minded agency in the U.S. with a global view that is equally committed to quality and performance.”
“Through extensive discussion, analysis, and reflection, both agency teams recognized that we share very similar cultural values, commitment to our clients and science, and an emphasis on providing business solutions rather than just delivering services,” said CG Life Managing Partner Erik Clausen. “We couldn’t be happier that we found a partner in MC Services that has the experience, skill and mindset, and relationships to collaborate with us and our clients.”
