Avnet Technology renews PR account

Avnet Technology Solutions has renewed its regional contract with Eastwest PR.

The renewal is for the fiscal year of 2010-2011.

Eastwest will continue to promote Avnet TS in the Asia Pacific region, particularly in key territories such as the ASEAN countries, Australia, China and India.

Michael Costigan, director of marketing and business innovation, Avnet TS said: "Avnet TS has considerably expanded its footprint in APAC following our strategic investment and acquisitions in ASEAN, China and India during the last fiscal year ended 30 June 2010. APAC is a high-growth region for us and we rely on EastWest to be our solid partner in communications as we accelerate further our business growth here."

Additionally, the PR agency has also won project work for accounting and consulting firm Nexia TS.

When asked the value of both wins, Eastwest remained tight-lipped.

Eastwest's MD Frederic Moraillon recently left the agency to start his own public relations agency.
