(CelebrityAccess) — Public relations agency WildKat announced on Tuesday that it has expanded into the United States with new hires and new offices in New York and Los Angeles.
Liza Prijatel Thors has been hired as Senior PR Executive to oversee the company’s new Los Angeles office, while Tim McKeough has been tapped as PR Director with oversight of WildKat’s new New York office.
Wildkat’s expansion into the US follows a substantial investment from Edition Capital, a private equity investor focused on the logistics and media industries.
Liza Prijatel Thors will assume her new role immediately, and comes to WildKat from Rebecca Davis Public Relations. Her resume also includes stints at Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Susan Blond Inc., and Universal Music Group.
Tim McKeough, who is currently Press Director at the Metropolitan Opera, will transition to WildKat later this year, the company said. His previous experience includes tenures at the Sydney Theatre Company and the Southbank Centre.
The new offices are the first North American expansion for WildKat, which previously maintained offices in London, Paris, and Berlin.
