NEW YORK: Mozilla Corporation has selected BerlinRosen as its U.S. agency of record.
The agency was brought on following a competitive selection process. The contract, effective July 15, is for one year.
BerlinRosen is responsible for Mozilla’s comprehensive PR and communications strategy planning and development. The firm will work on earned media, advise on digital and creative projects and support the strengthening of the nonprofit’s brand.
“We were extremely impressed with BerlinRosen’s experience not only in tech, but also their track record of social justice advocacy; their roster of entertainment, consumer and lifestyle clients; and their political chops,” said Ellen Canale, director of corporate communications at Mozilla, in an emailed statement.
BerlinRosen is emphasizing the company’s user-first, privacy-first brand and promoting a variety of products. This includes not only the Firefox browser, but also Pocket, a content curation and organization platform, Mozilla VPN and Mozilla Hubs, a virtual meetings option.
Brian Levin, VP in BerlinRosen’s technology and innovation practice, is leading the account with an interdisciplinary team that includes EVP Dan Levitan, account supervisor Katelyn Hertel, digital senior account executive Robbie Dornbush and account executive Angelina Mah.
Allison+Partners had previously represented the free software company for approximately 10 years. The agency did not reply to a request for comment.
Mozilla Corporation is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mozilla Foundation, and as non-profit has been a leading advocate for keeping the internet a public resource, that remains open and accessible to all people. For 2019, Mozilla Foundation and its subsidiaries' net revenue was $828.6 million.
