NEW YORK--Hill + Knowlton Strategies has expanded its relationship with CA Technologies in the US and Europe.

The firm, which has handled corporate comms support for CA since 2010, has now been selected to support CA Technologies’ Solutions portfolio in the US, displacing incumbent Access.

In addition, H+K Strategies recently won CA Technologies’ business in Germany following a competitive review that featured Fleishman-Hillard, Maisberger and incumbent Story Maker.

The developments come after H+K relenquished CA's Asia-Pacific PR mandate earlier this year.

H+K’s corporate work with CA Technologies has aimed to position the company as an industry leader at the forefront of enterprise innovation. The agency will also work with its Solutions group to communicate the business value CA Technologies brings in terms of business service innovation.

“H+K truly understands CA Technologies’ approach and has been a strong partner in achieving great results for us for more than two years,” said Sarah Atkinson, vice president, communications, CA Technologies. “H+K is a world class communications consultancy and we’re confident in the talented team they’ve assembled to support us. We’re already off to a great start.”

The $4.8bn company has reshuffled much of its comms roster in recent years. Earlier this year, it hired Octopus to handle its UK account, and also handed Asia-Pacific PR duties to In.Fom.
