International site MovieTickets.com has chosen MWW Group as its AOR. Among the firm’s work, it will create and execute a social media and media relations plan.

Hoover’s has selected Shift Communications as its AOR after issuing an RFP to five firms, PRWeek reports. The information company’s previous AOR was Kwittken & Company, which didn’t compete for the work.
