CHICAGO, IL — McGraw-Hill Education, a leading provider of high-quality education materials and learning solutions, today announced it has selected Ogilvy Public Relations as its public relations agency of record. The relationship will be managed from Ogilvy’s Chicago office, with support from its New York, Washington and San Francisco offices.

“There’s a great story to be told here. For 125 years, people have thought of McGraw-Hill Education as the world’s premier textbook publisher,” said Daniel Sieger, vice president of corporate communications, McGraw-Hill Education. “What many people don’t know is that the company has been leading the way in digital and adaptive learning for a number of years and our digital transformation is rapidly accelerating. Ogilvy Public Relations is the right partner to help tell that story. They have extensive experience with iconic brands, and clearly understand how teachers, students and the general public consumes information today— through a variety of online, mobile, social and traditional media channels.”

Ogilvy Public Relations will work with McGraw-Hill Education to build the company’s reputation as a leader in the delivery of digital and adaptive learning technology. The agency will manage national media relations, thought leadership initiatives and a robust social media program to raise brand awareness of leading products like SmartBook and ALEKS.

“It’s an exciting time for McGraw-Hill Education and we are honored to be their partner through every step of their journey,” said Michele Anderson, Chicago managing director, Ogilvy Public Relations. “This is a company that is truly dedicated to providing learning insights to administrators, teachers and students and ultimately improving how our society learns. Learning and innovation is part of our DNA at Ogilvy and having the opportunity to embark on such an important mission with our client is why we are in the business of PR. We are looking forward to helping McGraw-Hill Education spread the word about its mission—to help learners unlock their maximum potential.”
