REDWOOD CITY, CA — Dynamo, a London-based public relations firm, is launching a sister company in the US. Based in Redwood City, Dynamo Communications Inc. will support the agency’s ever-expanding US client base from the heart of Silicon Valley.
The US company will be led by Heather Delaney, who previously as head of crowdfunding with Dynamo has helped clients raise over $25 million in pledges since launching a dedicated PR team three years ago. As well as working with crowdfunding clients, retained North American clients at launch include 3Doodler, maker of the world’s first 3D printing pen; NComputing, a leader in desktop virtualization software; and WowWee, developers of hi-tech robotic and consumer entertainment products.
Delaney, Head of Dynamo US and a native Bay Area resident, says: “Dynamo has grown so much in a short space of time to be truly international in its client base, largely due to the success of our crowdfunding campaigns across the world. We’re responding to our US clients who’ve been asking us to set up a West Coast office for a while. This is a chance to bring Dynamo’s creative approach to PR to the place known for creating truly disruptive start-ups.”
Sydney Wiseman, Brand Manager at WowWee says: “We have hired Dynamo for the US and we welcome them opening their North American office as our strong relationship with the team is rooted in the fantastic global results they have consistently delivered. Based on their core values, and impressive knowledge of the US media and technology landscape, this expansion is a no-brainer, and hugely welcomed by everyone here at WowWee. Dynamo’s drive, charm, expertise and enthusiasm sits perfectly within a Silicon Valley environment, and we’re happy to have the US team as an extension of our own.”
Mark Regal at Indiegogo explains: “Dynamo were the first PR firm to launch a dedicated crowdfunding division and have proved themselves as a trusted partner of Indiegogo since day one. We’d like to welcome their talented team, led by Heather, to the US. The team offers unbeatable experience, knowledge and valuable counsel to make crowdfunding projects really fly.”
