Over the last few years the world has seen its share of corporate crisis situations, a quick search on the Internet for Exxon or Toyota and you’ll see story after story about their experience with crisis communications. Hill+Knowlton Strategies (H+K) is launching a corporate emergency response offering as a complement to its existing crisis communications service. The new offering will provide emergency response preparedness to organizations for all functions of crisis management and incident response, including addressing preparedness for roles and plans outside of the communications function.
The public relations agency has Vlad Grigore, formerly energy giant Statoil’s leader of emergency response, development and production North America (DPNA). Vlad joins H+K as Vice-President and while based in Calgary, will be working with H+K clients globally.
