Amanda Groty, who served more than a dozen years at Hill+Knowlton Strategies and exited as vice chair and global technology head, has joined Teneo's London office as a senior managing director.
At H+K, she was also client relationship manager in the EMEA for the key LG Electronics account, global vice chairman-strategy & marketing, and head of the EMEA technology practice.
Groty also did a two-year stint in Japan as Nissan's global corporate communications manager, a year in Switzerland as VP-head of communications for ABB's electrification business and almost a year in Luxembourg as PayPal's senior director & head of EMEA communications.
Nick Clayton, CEO of Teneo UK, said Groty's experience in implementing strategic communications programs internationally at scale, combined with her knowledge of the tech sector, will be a huge benefit for his shop's clients.
He praised her "very real understanding of the pressures and challenges facing our clients today" and believes Groty's perspective will be invaluable as Teneo helps clients manage and protect their reputation.
