The world’s b2b agency in Houston, Aberdeen & Singapore

Fifth Ring was established in 1991, with the simple vision of becoming a full-service, integrated communications agency focused on building brands and helping clients with bold work. Over time, they grew from one office with three people in Aberdeen, Scotland, to today’s global footprint across the world’s energy hubs of Houston, Rio de Janeiro, Stavanger, Dubai and Singapore.

This is best expressed through their mission statement; ‘Think like a strategist. Create like an artist. Act like a pro’.
