About Public Affairs

Public Affairs is a hub gathering exceptional professionals with quality knowledge in a wide area of expertise.

We offer niche services to high-end businesses, political clients, real estate developers and investing companies.

Almost three decades after the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe, lobbying and public affairs work in remain roughly unknown as an effective tool of linking private business interests to the central and local government, the business environment and legislators alike.

Often neglected and under-utilized, the public affairs niche of PR can be an expeditious key to success for Romanian-based foreign and local businesses. This is where we come into play.

Testimonials

  • Cornel Comșa has an extraordinary grasp of how Romanian politics works. Every time I needed to understand the politics or individual politicians behind a particular decision in Romania, Cornel was able to deliver. His level of access to the right people in the right places in Bucharest is hard to beat.
    Ivo Ilic Gabara
    President
    BGR Gabara LLP, London
    When APCO needed to quickly come to grips with Romanian politics, Cornel was instrumental in enabling us to do so. His ability to act as a cultural interface between 'Brussels' and 'Bucharest' was fundamental in enabling us to work effectively in Romania.

  • Sur base d’expériences vécues, je recommande sans réserve le support de Public Affairs pour une société souhaitant s’installer en Roumanie et bénéficier d’emblée d’un réseau de haut niveau. J’ai pu apprécié personnellement son administrateur Cornel Comșa; il est assurément un des meilleurs connaisseurs actuels du «who is who» politique et économique roumains.
    Stephan Uhoda
    CEO
    Cecoforma SA, Brussels
    AFI Europe, the developer who built Cotroceni Park has a long positive relationship with Public Affairs. The consultancy services provided by them are precise and efficient in solving problems. I found in Cornel G. Comșa a reliable partner that understands the core of the issue raised by any client, and I think it's safe to say that we developed a flawless business relationship.

  • Efficace, il a toujours agi dans les délais pour les missions confiées et avec un sens du respect des engagements pris et de l’atteinte des résultats peu commun de nos jours; il est à mon avis, en Roumanie, un des consultants en stratégie et en relations publiques les plus pointus du moment.
    Stephan Uhoda
    CEO
    Uhoda Group, Liege
    During the first uninominal parliamentary elections ever held in Romania after '89, I had the pleasure to work with the Public Affairs company. It was the perfect training for the 2009 Presidential elections. Many key elements that defined my senator profile at that time were vital within the Presidential campaign.
    Crin Antonescu
    President of the National Liberal Party
    2009-2013
  • Mr. Comșa joined my team at the beginning of May 2008. He was the main ingredient that helped me win against the Liberal-Democratic Party machine. From strategic decisions to public events and the clean delivery of the nine historical speeches of that particular campaign, Cornel was impeccable. If these two mandates will rise to the expectations of Bucharest citizens, it would be partially his "fault" as well.
    Sorin Oprescu
    Mayor of Bucharest
    2008-2016
    I met Cornel in 2003 when Rompetrol started to conquer the Bulgarian market. He was a counselor to the Romanian Royal family at that time and I felt it would have been impolite to make him an offer to start working for me. However, four years later, when he started his own PR company I asked him to join my team and he did it, adapting and understanding our needs right away. He was one of the few people that could temperate and advice me properly in turmoil times.

Founder

Cornel G. Comșa

Cornel G. Comșa (born 1977, Alba Iulia, Romania) has a B.Sc. in Political Science (Faculty of European Studies, Babeș Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca) and holds a M.A. in International Relations and European Integration (National School of Political and Administrative Sciences, Bucharest).

In 2002 he emerged as the youngest president of a political party in post-Communist Romania. He worked as a counselor to the Romanian Royal family (October 2002 - December 2006) and as a personal advisor to the Prime-Minister (February 2003 - January 2007). In official capacity he has visited more than 50 countries and has met 12 heads of state.

For the past two decades, he was involved in several successful national electoral campaigns and noteworthy socio-political projects (e.g. campaigning for the Mayor of Bucharest, 2008-2016, for the head of the National Liberal Party, 2009-2013, and working closely for several high-profile presidential campaigns).

Between December 2012 and December 2016, as an elected member of the Romanian Parliament, he was actively involved in Romania’s ground-breaking legislative initiatives. As a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee in the Chamber of Deputies, his work aimed to connect local realities to global trends.

His in-depth knowledge and unique experience gained from crisscrossing the country and the region for the past decades are anchored in a profound understanding of the Romanian post-1989 realities. His network of contacts and relationships extends in all 41 Romania’s counties.
