Specialist Communications comprise individual business units with separate and distinct marketing expertise by industry, audience segments or medium. Our clients benefit from their depth of knowledge and strategic focus; the Group benefits through the flexibility these companies offer as partners for sister WPP companies where appropriate. Additionally, we are able to capitalize on the trends in client demand for new expertise. Our role in managing this portfolio is to help these companies grow on their own terms and support co-operation opportunities across the Group.
