SEC Newgate CEO Fiorenzo Tagliabue has received the 2023 SABRE Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement. This prestigious prize was awarded for successful transformation of SEC Newgate from an independent Italian firm into one of TOP 25 PR agencies in the world.
Over the past 10 years, SEC Relazioni Pubbliche e Istituzionali, founded back in 1989, has transformed itself into the global SEC Newgate Group, with a footprint that includes corporate, financial and public affairs firms in Europe, Asia-Pacific, North America and Latin America. In April 2022, SEC Newgate acquired a stake in New York-based Global Strategy Group, one of the leading independent public affairs firms in the US. Also in 2022, the Mexican firm Another, with its network of offices in Latin America, joined the group. SEC Newgate, GSG and Another between them have reported 2021 public relations fee income of around $172 million.
Fiorenzo Tagliabue previously worked in the publishing industry and spent some time running the start-up of the Vatican Television Centre. Beyond his role as an entrepreneur and public relations agency principal, Tagliabue was a member of the board of directors of the Fondazione Teatro alla Scala of Milan for 11 years, as well of the Fondazione Banco Alimentare onlus and the Board of IUAV (Istituto Universitario Architettura Venezia), one of the most important architectural departments in Italy. Currently, he sits on the Board of Action Contre la Faim (ACF), a global humanitarian group focused on hunger and malnutrition.
