Avigilon Selects Ogilvy Public Relations
Avigilon, a leader in high-definition and megapixel video surveillance solutions, has selected Ogilvy Public Relations (www.ogilvypr.com) as its new agency of record in the United States. Avigilon will partner with Ogilvy PR on corporate communications, thought leadership, media relations and product PR. The account will be run by the Technology Practice out of Ogilvy PR's San Francisco office.
"Avigilon is growing at such a rapid pace, gaining recognition worldwide. We are very impressed with Ogilvy PR's Technology Practice and are looking forward to partnering with them to further our presence in the US," said Angela St. Amour, communications manager for Avigilon. "We are confident that Ogilvy PR will be able to drive measurable results and greater awareness for our story of innovation and growth."
"We are very excited to work with Avigilon, a truly innovative company," said Luca Penati, managing director of Ogilvy PR's Global Technology Practice. "If you think about the tremendous benefits of HD surveillance solutions, it's hard to believe that this entire industry is still largely relying on analog. We see this as a tremendous opportunity for Avigilon and we want to help the company capitalize on that."
