About Us
Hill+Knowlton Strategies (H+K) is a global public relations and integrated communications agency.
About Hill+Knowlton Strategies Colombia

In 1927 reporter and financial columnist John W. Hill and public relations director, Donald Knowlton, founded Hill & Knowlton. The firm grew and in 1934 the company moved its headquarters from Cleveland to New York.

Hill & Knowlton was acquired in 1980 by J. Walter Thompson, part of WPP Group. In 2011 Hill & Knowlton and Public Strategies—two organizations owned by WPP—combined operations. The new agency was subsequently rebranded as Hill+Knowlton Strategies and we began operations in Colombia in 2010.

Our co-founder words, John Hill, 90 years ago are still the reason of our business:

“If you don’t tell your story, then someone else will, and they will invariably get it wrong”.

Introducing the Fifth Seat

The continuous evolution of the public is our greatest challenge and opportunity.

Today’s audiences are more demanding than ever. They are smarter, they are more inter-connected, and they expect more from brands and organizations.

They don’t simply want to know what you do. They want to know what you stand for, and they are exceptionally attuned to quick shifts in brand reputation.

Organizations need to communicate and connect with them in new ways.

At H+K, we understand and keep up with the perpetual motion of today’s global public. We reflect the voice of the public, at every intersection, especially when an important decision is at hand. Board level. Brand level. Reputation level. We help our clients communicate not just what they do, but what they stand for.
