SAN FRANCISCO - October 26, 2005 - Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide (Ogilvy PR) today announced the addition of Silicon Image, Inc. to its agency roster. Silicon Image will work with the agency’s offices in North America, Asia and Europe to establish a global communications campaign that will generate visibility for Silicon Image’s product and technology development, innovation and excellence.
“As the consumer electronics, PC display and storage sectors converge, Silicon Image’s technology puts it in the sweet spot,” said Kasey Holman, Senior Director of Corporate Marketing and Communications for Silicon Image. “Ogilvy’s global strengths in technology and corporate public relations, their branding expertise and their creativity made them the right choice for Silicon Image as we rapidly grow our business.”
In the coming months, Ogilvy PR will work with Silicon Image on a series of major technology launches and branding initiatives in North America and Asia. Ogilvy PR is managing the global account from its San Francisco office, working with additional members of its technology practice across the network.
