HONG KONG - Monday, November 4th 2013 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Business Wire today announced the opening of a full-service office in Hong Kong, reaffirming its commitment to personalized local service coupled with unparalleled global reach. The new office is Business Wire's third in Asia, and 32nd worldwide.
Working with various partners, Business Wire has had representative sales offices in the region for more than a dozen years. The decision to open its own dedicated office is in response to its many multinational corporate and agency clients eager to have a direct Business Wire relationship.
"Hong Kong possesses a sophisticated corporate communications environment, perfectly suited to Business Wire's gold standard solutions and services," said Michael Becker, senior vice president, who spearheaded the Hong Kong project. "We look forward to establishing close working relationships with local public relations and investor relations professionals, and becoming an integral member of these communities."
The Hong Kong office will be staffed with its own editors. With close to two dozen newsrooms and nearly 200 editors, Business Wire has more local news operations than all its competitors combined. Local service and global reach, traditional Business Wire hallmarks, promise to benefit Hong Kong companies targeting major consumer and capital markets worldwide.
Business Wire's office is located at:
51/F Hopewell Centre 183 Queen's Road East Wan Chai, Hong Kong Telephone: +852 3602 3091 www.businesswire.hk
"We are excited to be introducing the industry's most innovative services to the dynamic Hong Kong market," added Cathy Baron Tamraz, Business Wire's CEO. "Our service offerings include global news distribution, multimedia, regulatory disclosure services, web-hosting, content marketing platforms, and advanced social media monitoring. Hong Kong communications professionals will now have the opportunity to experience a new level of local service coupled with worldwide product offerings."
