The Hoffman Agency Expands Public Relations Practice in the Pacific Northwest

PORTLAND, Ore., February 11, 2015 – The Hoffman Agency, a global communications consultancy headquartered in San Jose, California, has expanded its Portland-area office to accommodate its growing Pacific Northwest team. New additions to the office include Senior Account Executive Kelly Stone and Account Coordinator Callie Gisler. The office joins the Agency’s global footprint, which includes offices in Asia and Europe as well as the United States.

Kelly Stone joins the team as a senior account executive with an extensive background in technology communications. Her previous work includes large brands, such as Microsoft Windows and accounts, as well as startup companies. She most recently worked with Silicon Valley-based companies focused on enterprise cloud solutions, security and wearable devices.

Account Coordinator Callie Gisler brings both consumer and technology experience to the agency. Prior to joining the Hoffman team, Gisler spearheaded digital strategy and social media practices at Vox Public Relations Public Affairs. A graduate of the University of Oregon, she is the recent recipient of the Jack Ewan Outstanding Public Relations Graduate award.

“Some of the best talent in the PR universe resides in the Portland area, so we’re pleased to expand our base there,” said Steve Burkhart, general manager of The Hoffman Agency for North America. “We’ll continue to serve our Pacific Northwest clients from the Portland area, and we’ll funnel important global accounts to our Northwest operation as well.”

The new office is located at 203 SE Park Plaza Drive, Suite 115, in Vancouver, Washington.
