About Us

websiteMeropa is South Africa’s leading empowered communications and PR company.

We offer full-service public relations and communications strategy programmes to about 60 clients from our wholly owned offices in Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.

We can reach into 17 African countries through our AfricaOne network, which offers dedicated PR outlets throughout East, Central and West Africa and the Indian Ocean islands.

Meropa is the only Southern Africa partner of The Worldcom Public Relations Group providing access to the international creative capability of over 2000 communications professionals in 115 cities, in 49 countries on six continents.

We are a truly independent voice – not part of, and dependent on an ad agency.

Meropa has its roots in the legendary Group Editors, a company started in the 1960s by the late Aubrey Sussens, the founder of modern-day public relations in South Africa. In 1989 Sussens was joined in business by Peter Mann, and the company changed its name to Sussens Mann.

After its sale to Chime Communications in the mid-1990s, the company traded as Lowe Bell & Mann before becoming Meropa Communications in 1998.
