Kordia and PPR NZ Strike A Chord

Kordia and PPR NZ Strike A Chord

Kordia, New Zealand's only telco dedicated to the business sector, and a significant player in the local telecommunications scene, has announced it has appointed Professional Public Relations New Zealand (PPR) as its communications partner.

Kordia's General Manager of Sales and Marketing, Drew Gilpin, says, "We chose PPR because of its leadership in business and corporate communications, its approach to strategic advice and its full service offering. We're really looking forward to working closely with the PPR team to further develop our position in the market.

"Many people will have seen our new marketing campaign and it's fair to say we mean business. We are committed to providing New Zealand businesses with the kind of solutions and service they just don't get from any other telco.

"We understand the needs of businesses and create solutions that will make a difference to how they operate. Our customers get more out of their networks because they have true visibility and control over what's going which creates greater efficiencies and benefits both of us in the long run."

General Manager of PPR New Zealand, Jonathan Tudor, says working with Kordia is an exciting opportunity to build a brand in an industry that is at the heart of New Zealand's economic success.

"Kordia is making important inroads in the telecommunications industry in this country and we welcome the chance to help them take even bigger strides into the network and technology solutions sector.

"Telecommunications services are no longer just business enablers; when implemented and managed effectively they become strategic assets for smart businesses. Kordia's services make this a reality, and although top brass CIOs and IT Managers are aware of these services, PPR will help Kordia communicate with a much wider audience and as a result grow their business," he says.

PPR New Zealand is part of the PPR group, Australasia's most awarded full service PR agency, and part of the world's largest integrated communication services group - WPP . PPR New Zealand is also the exclusive New Zealand affiliate of leading global public relations and communications consultancy Burson-Marsteller.

The new communications partnership between PPR and Kordia is effective immediately.
