Managing Director of Hanover Dublin Lorna Jennings said, “It is a real honour to be nominated for the Global SABRE Awards which is such a valued and recognised industry awards programme. As Managing Director of Hanover Dublin, which opened its doors in Ireland last year, it is a great privilege for me and my team to be part of such well-established and best-in-class communications consultancy. Hanover Dublin is in a unique position, as it brings the best of the wider groups experience from London, Brussels and Dubai to our Irish clients, while offering exceptional Dublin-based analysis for our local and international clients. This transfer of skills and perspectives is important for clients with a footprint in multiple jurisdictions, especially at this critical moment in the development of Irish-British-European business and political structures for the future”.

“We are very excited about the nominations and hope to be in a position to celebrate following the ceremony in Miami on the 25th October. Regardless of the result, Hanover is in a great place and we are looking forward to seeing what 2018 brings.”
