Leading PC manufacturer, Compaq, has appointed Herald
Communications to handle its corporate and product PR in the Czech
Republic after a five-way pitch. The appointment comes as part of the
internal restructuring which followed Compaq’s takeover of IT company
Digital in July last year. Herald Eastern Europe managing director Sarka
Klofacova said Herald’s task would involve alerting customers to the
fact that Compaq is no longer just a PC company, but that it now also
provides internet systems and software.
