Stem joins Saatchi & Saatchi S’ Expanding Communications Practice
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., October 9, 2012 –– Today award-winning sustainability consultancy and communications firm Saatchi & Saatchi S announces energy optimization company Stem as the newest addition to the firm’s client roster. A venture-funded start up, Stem uses big data and cloud computing power to visualize, predict, and benchmark electricity use, creating actionable savings for its customers.
“Stem is the kind of innovative, young company that will emerge as a leader in our new energy economy,” said Annie Longsworth, CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi S. “It is a company to watch and we’re excited to add Stem to our growing list of game-changing cleantech startups.”
Earlier this year Saatchi & Saatchi S announced it has strengthened its communication practice and is now offering an expanded suite of communication services, including earned and social media capabilities. The new offer is specifically designed to attract cleantech startups, which depend on PR as a primary brand communication vehicle.
“We know that 85 percent of business owners view reducing electrical costs as essential to staying financially competitive,” said Brian Thompson, CEO of Stem. “As electricity continues to be one of the largest expenses for commercial businesses, communicating the immediate advantages of Stem’s system for business owners is essential, and I believe we have chosen the right partners in Saatchi & Saatchi S to get the job done.”
