Our Firm

GRC Partners + Porter Novelli was established on 1 October 2022, combining the talents and experience of two longstanding specialist consulting firms.
Our team works together to deliver non-partisan, expert advice in government affairs, corporate and financial communications and strategic, multi-disciplinary business projects.

We work on either a long-term or project-specific basis with a diverse portfolio of domestic and international clients, across all industry sectors.

From our offices in both Auckland and Wellington, we help clients take a rounded approach to understanding and communicating effectively with all the stakeholders in your organisation’s ecosystem: from central and local government, business and news media, to employees, investors and communities.

Our aim is to provide insight and advice that creates value for clients and supports their commercial and reputational goals.

Through our experience and networks, we help our clients to join the dots between commercial and reputational objectives; public policy, legislation and regulation; news media and other stakeholder scrutiny.
Our way of working is based on a foundation of high ethical standards that ensures our staff act in the best interests of our clients and deal with all stakeholders in good faith.

We work closely with our partner company GRACosway, Australia’s leading public affairs, corporate and financial communications counsel.
Our firm is a member of the Clemenger Group, Australasia’s leading communications and advertising network, and is a New Zealand partner of the Interel Global Partnership. Our consultants are members of the Public Relations Institute of New Zealand.
