Spin the Agencies of Record

Avigilon, a Canadian video surveillance solutions company, has chosen Ogilvy PR as its AOR in the U.S. after a competitive search. The firm’s work will focus on corporate communications, thought leadership, media relations targeting business and tech trade publications, and promotions for Avigilon products. The company also has plans to go public in the U.S. (It already trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange.) The goal is to raise awareness among decision makers, including those at the C-level, and prospective investors.

Buy.com has chosen Hotwire (the PR agency, not the travel site) for a branding campaign that will emphasize the company’s “friendly, transparent and honest” value proposition and to raise awareness of the e-commerce site. Hotwire launched in 2000 and has offices across Europe and Australia. The firm came to the U.S. in 2011 and now has offices in New York and San Francisco.
