CEDAR RAPIDS, August 14—Rockwell Collins, a leader in aviation electronics and communication for commercial and government clients, has selected Edelman Public Relations Worldwide as its agency of record. Edelman will support the company’s recent spin-off from Rockwell International as well as providing ongoing global public relations support.
“Now that Rockwell Collins operates as an independent company, it will be increasingly important to educate people about our business and industry leading technologies,” says Karen Tripp, vice president of business communications for Rockwell Collins.  
Edelman’s aviation experience includes work with Boeing, Bombardier and ASA/Delta Connection, among others. Edelman has also been responsible for overseeing communications activities surrounding more than a dozen spin-offs and IPOs, including those of Expedia, DLJ Direct and barnesandnoble.com.
