Dutko Worldwide‘s acquisition by a London-based public relations group will bring the U.S. lobbying firm two major benefits, Chief Executive Officer Mark Irion said Monday. Dutko gains a strong presence abroad and the chance to build a public affairs business in the U.S. using an existing global brand.

Irion said the acquisition, by London-based Huntsworth, “is the right kind of deal for us at this point … They had what we needed and we had what they needed.” The deal gives Dutko access to Huntsworth’s offices in 37 countries, he said, and to Grayling, Huntsworth’s international public relations and public affairs brand. Huntsworth gets a U.S. public policy firm with a strong federal lobbying presence in Washington, D.C., and offices in nine other U.S. cities, including Boston, Tallahassee, Fla., and Denver.
