DiGennaro Communications Expands Global Network

Agency Forms Strategic Alliance With Access PR, Sydney; Builds Upon Existing Multinational Footprint With Eulogy! London

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 19, 2013) - New York City-based DiGennaro Communications (DGC), leading independent PR agency, announced today an expansion of its global network of independent agencies to Asia-Pacific with the launch of its latest strategic partnership with Access PR. Founded by former journalist Andrea Kerekes and based in Sydney with offices in Melbourne, Access PR will become a valuable partner in providing clients with the benefits of a multinational network while retaining the speed and entrepreneurship of independent agencies.

This collaboration follows the success of DGC's existing partnership with the UK-based Eulogy!, which began in February 2012. DGC and Eulogy! work together on numerous clients. The two agencies also offer an employee exchange program, among other collaborations, to enhance international public relations capabilities and experience on behalf of clients and employees. As part of this new alliance, DGC, Eulogy! and Access will collaborate to offer cross-border strategic development and activations for both existing clients and prospects.

"The relationship we have established with Eulogy! has been invaluable and we now share several multinational clients, which is the type of success we're looking to achieve with Access," says DGC Founder and CEO, Sam DiGennaro. "Like our partnership with Eulogy!, our similarities go beyond sharing expertise across corporate, consumer and B2B. The culture Andrea has created at Access PR is akin to DGC's spirit and values."

Andrea Kerekes, Founder and CEO of Access PR, adds, "An international independent network offers a brilliant combination of reach, energy and accountability for clients without the sluggish multi-national culture. More and more we are asked for global solutions and finding such like-minded people to work with will make a big difference to what we can offer existing and potential clients."

"It's important that we are able to offer our global clients local market solutions and we felt that the best way to do this was to start forming very strong alliances with agencies in key territories," Lara Leventhal, Eulogy! MD agreed. The partnership is effective immediately.
