Version 2.0 Communications, a public relations and digital communications firm, announced it has strengthened its relationship with The Whiteoaks Consultancy and is now a full member of the Whiteoaks International Network. The mutually beneficial partnership provides Version 2.0 clients with greater access to international support and Whiteoaks clients with enhanced resources in North America.
The expanded agreement builds on the agencies’ shared commitment to strategic, results-driven, measurable public relations campaigns and creates considerable new growth opportunities for both organizations. The Whiteoaks International Network provides Version 2.0 with important resources in the U.K. market, along with access to its international partners across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific.
Several Version 2.0 clients, including Adder and University of Michigan’s Ross Business School, are already leveraging the Whiteoaks network for PR activities across Europe and Asia-Pacific. Version 2.0 has also assisted Whiteoaks clients in need of North American support, including Lumi.
“We are fortunate to work with exciting, innovative and disruptive organizations across industries including technology, energy and higher education at Version 2.0,” said Jean Serra, co-founder and partner of Version 2.0. “Our clients have ambitious growth goals and it is critical that we offer comprehensive global services to meet their needs. Working with the Whiteoaks network demonstrated a like-minded approach to communications strategy and execution, as well as a deep commitment to superior client service. We look forward to strengthening and expanding our partnership as we embark on new joint global programs and projects.”
“We are thrilled to cement what has been an excellent partnership so far. There are many synergies between Whiteoaks and Version 2.0 so to bring them formally into our network will provide huge benefits for our clients,” said James Kelliher, CEO at Whiteoaks. “We understand that to offer truly international PR requires local knowledge and understanding, which is why partnering with established agencies such as Version 2.0 offers such a strong proposition for clients looking to branch out into new territories.”
