Einsteinz Communications signs on to the With Global AllianceBy Jonas Lopez in Marcoms News on Wednesday, 14th April 2021 at 2:45pm
The new partnership enables Einsteinz to liaise with other member-agencies on key campaigns.
Established in 2020, the Alliance has ten member-agencies spread out across 26 countries, including founding agencies With (UK), Affect (USA), Bud Communications (Singapore), Ideosphere (India) and Wedge (China).
Einsteinz’s entry into the Alliance as the 11th member also coincides with the agency marking 20 years of business, having worked with a laundry list of consumer, corporate, digital media, telecoms and technology clients, both big and small throughout its history.
Having been founded in 2001, Einsteinz has since expanded its reach beyond its North Sydney home, opening a second office in Brisbane in 2014 to service the Queensland region.
“Joining a network of like-minded, expert PR tech agencies is very powerful for both our team and our clients. Access to the combined PR and marketing tech expertise of the With Global Alliance members across more than 20 markets, will provide us with insights and innovative approaches, as well as supporting our clients as they explore their requirements globally,” said Einsteinz founder/managing director Pru Quinlan.
“Australia remains an important market for technology businesses with key clients and prospects looking for market entry, expansion or even a regional comms hub there, so finding the right partner was absolutely key for the With Global Alliance,” added Alliance global president Debbie Zaman, CEO of founding agency With.
“With 20 years of experience behind them and many industry accolades, Einsteinz Communications brings the deep expertise in tech and strong connections with the media that we needed. Pru is a phenomenal founder, and her team will be a huge asset to the alliance.”
