MCLEAN, VA: O'Keeffe & Company has won agency-of-record status for
Hewlett-Packard's public sector organization, which supplies government
and educational facilities with HP products.
O'Keeffe pitched against five other agencies to win what is now one of
its top-ten clients.
The agency has also recently gained public sector work for Oracle, and
performs government outreach for Palm, Network Associates, Picture Tel,
Logicomm, and i2 Technologies.
Stephen O'Keeffe, principal of O'Keeffe & Company, said the HP work is
not atypical for the agency. Forty percent of the agency's time is spent
on business-to-government work.
"The federal government is 'Fortune One,' so our objective is to get its
business for our clients," O'Keeffe said.
Three O'Keeffe employees will work on the HP account.
