Hotwire Global Communications Expands Its Global Tech Communications Leadership With New Hires and Client Wins

Hotwire, the global tech communications consultancy, is welcoming new leaders as the company continues further expansion of its capabilities and adds new, innovative brands to the client roster.

Hotwire is building on its strategic acquisition of McDonald Butler Associates to unlock new possibilities of growth and present clients with a more robust communications offering and access to new skills and services. This new level of communication has been designed to build brand reputation, strengthen stakeholder relationships and deliver revenue growth, igniting the entire marketing ecosystem and supporting CMOs in growing their businesses.

“Technology and innovation leaders are continuing to manage complexity and are seeking out solutions to support,” said Heather Kernahan, global CEO of Hotwire. “This year we took steps to narrow the gaps that exist between marketing and sales with new integrated offerings and strengthened our relationships with clients as they navigated major shifts in their business. We’re also working with some amazing new brands and deepening our expertise and leadership across key areas of the business.”

New Leaders Support Rapid Growth

Hotwire continues to add senior leaders in strategy, planning, digital and client consulting to its teams across the world. This past quarter key hires have been made in Germany, the U.K., and the U.S.
