BOSTON: The Porter Novelli/Copithorne & Bellows alliance has

already begun to pay off, with the newly formed PN Convergence Group

(PNCG) capturing three hi-tech clients worth more than dollars 1 million

in annual billings.



The new business stems from joint pitches the two agencies made before

and after formalizing their merger. The clients are strategic Internet

consulting and services firm ZEFER; NewDeal, a developer and publisher

of advanced system, application and tool software for PCs; and online

custom industrial products marketplace SupplierMarket.com, which just

received dollars 40 million in its second round of financing.



According to C&B partner Tim Hurley, ZEFER (which had previously worked

with Alexander Ogilvy) selected PNCG because it was looking for an

agency with offices in San Francisco, Boston, Chicago and New York -

cities blanketed by the combined C&B/PN reach. NewDeal, on the other

hand, was searching for both hi-tech and public affairs experience,

which PN offers through its Washington, DC office. Hurley added that

C&B’s previous experience with a SupplierMarket.com competitor helped

the agency cinch that win.
