After a highly competitive pitch process, Hill+Knowlton Strategies (H+K) becomes Embraer's first global AOR. The ambitious, yearlong campaign will strengthen Embraer's profile internationally with global messaging and key market research.

"It is an honor to work with Embraer. They are an ambitious client with a passion for innovation and industry growth," H+K team lead and co-CEO of Ideal H+K in Brazil, Ricardo Cesar states. "Our campaign pushes the envelope beyond traditional PR to deliver a powerful boost in brand awareness, and ultimately, loyalty."

"At Embraer, we provide different solutions in commercial and executive aviation, defense and security, according to our customers' needs. As we continue to expand, it is important that our stakeholders worldwide know exactly who we are and what we're doing," Nelson Salgado, vice president of institutional relations comments. "In that sense, we needed an agency network with experience, processes, tools, and people to support our public relations efforts across the globe. The H+K team impressed us with their knowledge, expertise, dedication and creativity."
