SEATTLE—Nasdaq-listed tech firm F5 Networks has selected Waggener Edstrom as its PR agency of record following a competitive review.

The F5 Networks America account is to be managed by WagEd's offices in Portland, San Francisco and Seattle. The win adds to a roster of tech clients that already includes 3M, AVG, Honeywell, Lithium Technologies, Microsoft, T-Mobile and Toshiba.
