InkHouse Opens West Coast Office to Expand Public Relations and Content Marketing Practices

Agency Veteran Annemiek Hamelinck Named General Manager of InkHouse West

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwired - Feb 6, 2014) - InkHouse (www.inkhouse.com), a public relations and content marketing agency, today announced the opening of its San Francisco office, the first outside its Boston-area headquarters, and named Annemiek Hamelinck general manager of the office. She will lead InkHouse's San Francisco-based account team and spearhead business development.

Hamelinck joins InkHouse with extensive expertise in developing and managing creative and impactful campaigns. She has worked in communications since 1994, spanning three continents and supporting both technology and lifestyle brands, from early-stage companies to some of the world's largest brands.

"Opening a San Francisco office is a natural next step in our growth, and Annemiek is the perfect person to lead the charge," said Meg O'Leary, co-founder and principal of InkHouse. "With so many of our clients now maintaining a dual presence on both coasts, we see a ripe opportunity to develop bi-coastal public relations and content marketing strategies to reach their audiences."

Most recently, Hamelinck was a senior vice president at Waggener Edstrom Worldwide in San Francisco and London. She led the agency's brand strategy and marketing practice and counseled executives about various brand challenges, including audience segmentation and insights, brand positioning, master narrative development and influencer and advocacy relations. Prior to that, she held positions at Bite Communications, San Francisco; Antenna Group, San Francisco; and Barr & Chan Communications, Singapore.

"I have ambitious plans for the San Francisco office," Hamelinck said. "InkHouse has a rich history of entrepreneurship on the East Coast that I plan to bring to clients here on the West Coast. The agency has a fresh approach to public relations and content marketing that helps its clients not only raise brand awareness, but engage with their audiences in meaningful ways. This approach has also won InkHouse high accolades from industry watchers. I look forward to bringing my skills and experience to InkHouse and working with Meg, Beth and the team."
