Our Communications Team of the Year Bronze award celebrates our ongoing partnership with our client Oclaro, a tier-one provider and innovator of optical communications and laser solutions.  Early last year, Oclaro announced plans to merge with Opnext, a major competitor. We created and managed the external and internal communications program for the merger announcement, in cooperation with the companies’ in-house resources, and then subsequently managed a rebranding program for the company, which launched at the close of the transaction.
