Paris and New York (PRWEB) March 11, 2014
Paris-based IDENIUM, a public relations firm serving clients in the advertising, entertainment and media industry, announced today a new partnership agreement with New York-based OpenCommunications Omnimedia, a PR and digital content-creation company likewise specialized in the digital advertising and media field.
As part of the agreement, OpenCommunications will be the official representative of IDENIUM in the United States while IDENIUM will provide the same service to OpenCommunications in France and Europe.
“Recently, we have seen a sharp increase in demand for global and multimedia communications campaigns—The US is a major market, especially for many of our clients targeting their advertising and media services to global brands,” said Caroline Saslawsky, founder & CEO of IDENIUM. “That is why we turned to OpenCommunications. We are certain that this partnership will help both of our companies to serve our respective clients’ needs as they grow internationally.”
OpenCommunications CEO Andy Morris noted that both companies believe business-to-business marketing can be just as buzzworthy and creative as consumer marketing. The philosophies match. "We are thrilled to leverage IDENIUM as our European hub as we plan our expansion,” Morris said. “We have Italian clients opening offices in New York and Chicago clients targeting London. This partnership enables us to multiply the creative services we offer to all of them.”
Morris is a tech-industry veteran, former CEO of the PR firm Morris + King and advisory board member of Social Media Week. He founded OpenCommunications in August 2013 with Chief of Strategy Sally O’Dowd, a former journalist who has held senior communications positions at MSLGROUP, Leo Burnett and Razorfish (all part of Paris-based Publicis Groupe) and at other global concerns.

In addition, OpenCommunications provides a full suite of industry relations, including access to investors, strategic partners and the like.
