Philly's Anne Klein Communications Group Joins IPREX
Anne Klein Communications Group (AKCG; www.annekleincg.com), a strategic communication agency based in the Greater Philadelphia region, has joined IPREX, the worldwide corporation of public relations and communication agencies.
Founded in Southern N.J. in 1982, AKCG has built a reputation for its award-winning work for "C-suite" clients in four main industry sectors: healthcare; education; chemicals, energy & environment; and utilities.
AKCG concentrates on developing and maintaining positive public opinion among diverse stakeholders — from employees, neighbors and shareholders to online communities, advocates and detractors. Much of the agency's work is in crisis and issue preparation and response, including crisis communication planning, media strategy consulting, message development and spokesperson training. The agency also manages a significant number of community outreach programs and internal and external positioning campaigns.
Christopher Lukach, Senior Vice President and COO at AKCG said: "IPREX is an exceptional network of communication firms that will allow us to expand our offerings and maintain our standard of exceptional client service. We look forward to collaborating with and learning from our new colleagues."
IPREX Americas President Renzi Stone (Saxum, Oklahoma City), welcomed AKCG: "This is a high quality and well-established agency with great experience of directing and executing work for clients in multiple locations - a perfect fit for us since, with over 60 IPREX offices in the Americas alone, these skills are important.
"AKCG brings new expertise and experience to the vibrant best practices dialogue within IPREX which has helped us to develop the broad and deep capabilities our clients demand."
