PR Week: Waggener Edstrom named PR and social media agency for Transitions Optical in Asia

Transitions Optical has appointed Waggener Edstrom Communications as its new public relations and social media agency of record; Vizeum as its media agency of record; and iProspect as its search agency of record.

The appointments, effective immediately, encompass brand reputation, digital engagement, media relations and social media across Asia Pacific including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.

The company is a leading provider of photochromic (adaptive) lenses.

"Consumers are spending more time researching brands and products before a purchasing decision. With this change in consumer behavior, it is crucial for us to engage our consumers on multichannel platforms through both paid and earned media, such as social media, public relations and storytelling activities to keep them engaged with our brand," said Transitions Optical's general manager Stuart Cannon.

Regional vice president of Waggener Edstrom South East Asia Carolyn Camoens added: "Transitions really stands out as a trailblazer in the optical world and the opportunity to articulate the value of its products in APAC is a very exciting one. This partnership will see us deliver the strength of our network and our expertise in consumer, digital and healthcare."
