In early 2011, Porter Novelli took steps to strengthen its technology practice through the acquisition of Voce Communications, a well-regarded Silicon Valley tech agency.

While many other global agencies look to Asia for growth, Porter Novelli only has one office there, in Singapore. Instead it is strong in South America. Its network partner, In Press Porter Novelli, was named by Premio Comunique-se as PR Agency of the Year in Brazil, the third time in five years that In Press Porter Novelli has earned this recognition.

Porter Novelli also spent much of this period focusing on internal initiatives. It rebranded in November 2010 with the launch of 'the PN Way', and picked up several awards as a good place to work, including Porter Novelli Melbourne winning the 2011 Australian Business Award for 'recommended employer'.

Some top hires during this period were Bell Pottinger's Alex Woolfall in London as head of corporate reputation, EMEA, and Darlan Monterisi in New York as EV-P, client relationship leader.
