MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--W2O Group announced today the opening of a Silicon Valley office and the promotion of digital marketing expert, Aaron Strout, to Technology Practice Lead in response to the growing momentum of this business sector across its firms.
Technology is now the second largest and fastest growing practice within W2O Group. The Technology Practice started with two accounts less than three years ago and now services 14 clients, including HP, Verizon, Intel, BMC Software and INRIX. Strout will focus on expanding the Technology Practice across all W2O companies -- WCG, Twist Mktg and Brewlife -- while enhancing the range of services offered.
“Technology is a key business pillar that will drive the future growth of W2O Group,” said Strout. “Together with Boston and Austin, we now have a geographic presence in the major technology and innovation business centers in the United States that will enable us to more readily bring our next practices to clients in this important sector.”
The Silicon Valley office, which will include several team members representing account services, analytics and finance, will strengthen the Technology Practice and expand its footprint. Group Director and author Michael Brito, who has been working with and for technology clients for more than 15 years, will partner with Strout to lead business development and growth in that office.
“We have successfully expanded access and reach to top-tier talent and clients in our recently opened Los Angeles, Boston and Minneapolis offices. We expect to do the same here by having another office in the Bay Area beyond our global headquarters in San Francisco,” said Chairman and CEO Jim Weiss.
