The Whiteoaks Consultancy expands International Network with US partner Version 2.0 Communications

25 October 2016 The Whiteoaks Consultancy has announced leading East Coast US public relations agency Version 2.0 Communications has become a full member of the Whiteoaks International Network.

The agreement follows a successful one-year partnership during which clients on both sides of the Atlantic have been shared and supported by both agencies.

With offices in Boston, New York and San Francisco, Version 2.0 Communications brings a wealth of experience to the Whiteoaks International Network, serving as an important base for clients and prospects with interests on the East Coast of the US and beyond.

Version 2.0 has an established reputation for creative delivery in public relations and digital communications on behalf of a wide range of clients, including some of the most innovative organisations in the technology, clean energy and higher education markets, such as Blue Prism, WiTricity and the University of Michigan’s Ross Business School.

The Whiteoaks International Network provides Version 2.0 with important resources in the UK market, along with access to its partners in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific regions.

On the West Coast of the US, the Whiteoaks International Network continues to have a strong presence through its partner, Bob Gold & Associates, based in Los Angeles.

James Kelliher, CEO at Whiteoaks, said: “We are thrilled to cement what has been an excellent partnership so far. There are many synergies between Whiteoaks and Version 2.0 so to bring them formally into our network will provide huge benefits for our clients.”

“We understand that to offer truly international PR requires local knowledge and understanding, which is why partnering with established agencies such as Version 2.0 offers such a strong proposition for clients looking to branch out into new territories.”

Maura FitzGerald, co-founder and partner at Version 2.0, said: “Following a strong start to our mutually beneficial partnership, we’re delighted to expand our relationship as a full member of the Whiteoaks network to better serve our clients. We’ve enjoyed working alongside the Whiteoaks team across the globe, and are looking forward to building a longstanding relationship that will further our capabilities as a global agency.”
