With its Texas high-tech business booming, the Porter Novelli Convergence Group will be opening a new, full-service office in Austin.

PN Convergence Group is a unit of Porter Novelli International focused on the integrated public relations requirements of technology-driven companies. “Texas is the technology capital of the South-Central US and has a rich background and infrastructure in computing, communications and other fast-growth, innovative businesses,” says Gary Stockman,senior partner, operations, of the PN Convergence Group.

The office will serve many of the agency’s new accounts in Texas as well as its first and most senior Austin-based client — the National PriceWaterhouse Coopers MoneyTree Survey. It also will function as a hub for future new business efforts in the state, according to Stockman. The PN Convergence Group has among its Texas-based clients Agillion, BMC Software, the Dazel Corp., Exterprise, Kurion and Tellaire.

Laura Beck, a vice president with the PN Convergence Group, will manage the new Austin office. She has been working in the Texas capital for a year, supervising the PriceWaterhouse Coopers MoneyTree account and creating the foundation for the full-service office.

The PN Convergence Group is aggressively recruiting professional and support staff for its Austin office. Its Texas-based clients will be served by the PN Convergence Group’s “virtual account teams” located across North America and worldwide – including the agency’s offices in Atlanta, Boston, San Francisco and San Jose.

“We’re known worldwide for our commitment to results, team approach, marketing-grounded strategies and tactics, and ability to offer integrated services from corporate branding to public affairs to interactive services to national and international media and analyst relations,” said Stephen Jursa, senior partner, client services, of the Porter Novelli Convergence Group.
