New York—Global public relations and communications agency Hill+Knowlton Strategies announced an expansion plan for Africa, with the immediate opening of four offices—in Ghana, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda—to be followed by two others in Nigeria and South Africa.
The expansion will bring the company's total number of African offices to eight, building on existing operations in Egypt and Kenya.
“Investing in Africa is a key pillar of H+K's global strategy as we are committed to the continent's tremendous development potential and diverse cultures across the region,” said Jack Martin, global chairman-CEO of Hill+Knowlton Strategies, in a statement.
Alexander Döll has been named CEO of H+K Strategies Africa, a new position, to oversee the expanded presence. He previously headed H+K's East Africa operation as managing director East Africa.
