37 years of tradition

SEC Newgate was founded in 1984 as Kohl PR & Partner by Elizabeth Kohl in Bonn. Kohl PR & Partner was one of the first agencies in Germany to offer professional political communication. In 2015, Kohl PR became part of the SEC Newgate Group and thus developed into the German hub of the agency group, which is now represented in 14 countries worldwide. In 2021, the agency was renamed from Kohl PR & Partner to SEC Newgate Germany. Today, the agency is headquartered in Berlin. Through our long tradition, we know the German media and political landscape, we see ourselves as strategic partners of our clients and develop campaigns and initiatives that make a socio-political contribution. And this for national or international, large or small clients.

SEC Newgate's offices are located on Schumannstraße in the political centre of Berlin and in close proximity to our sister agency Orca Affairs. Orca Affairs is one of the leading agencies for public clients in Germany and became a partner of the SEC Newgate Group in 2021. Orca Affairs is a full service agency with in-house creative, event management (online/offline), video and film production and web design. Through the close cooperation of both agencies, our clients benefit from the expertise and the joint networks to media, politics and society.

A look at the history: 37 years of tradition.

As founder of Kohl PR & Partner and long-time president of GPRA, Elisabeth Kohl helped shape the German PR and agency landscape like no other. After her untimely death in 2005, her business partner Peter Rall took over the agency management until 2019 and then handed it over to Tanja Schüle, who set up the agency's Berlin office from 2005 to 2008. After 10 years on the corporate side, Tanja Schüle rejoined Kohl PR in 2017 as a member of the management team.

Peter Rall, with his background as a journalist at stern and editor-in-chief of the German service at Reuters, has left his mark on the agency as a PR and copywriting powerhouse.
