Yesterday, PRWeek wrote about Foursquare‘s agency search after cutting ties with Kaplow, which it signed as AOR in October 2010. Today we received a statement from Kaplow’s president and CEO Liz Kaplow: “We have a very strong partnership with foursquare and have greatly enjoyed working with them, and we hope there will be opportunities to work together on projects in the future.”
Foursquare PR manager Erin Gleason added in a comment via email: “Kaplow was a great partner for the past year. We hope there will be opportunities to work together on projects in the future.”
According to PRWeek, the account was worth six figures annually and services included media relations and consumer education efforts.
