HKA owns a proud legacy in serving the technology industry that dates back 20 years.

Its clients from that time anticipated many of today’s hottest tech sectors, including commercial satellites, smart manufacturing, bio sensors and advanced medical imaging. Several of its clients saw highly successful investor exits through IPOs and acquisitions by major firms.  One of HKA’s clients from that era, Maxwell Technologies, was purchased in early 2019 by Elon Musk’s Tesla for its advanced energy storage technology.

HKA has leveraged this impressive legacy to revitalize its technology practice in the era of digital transformation.  Innovative startups from Orange County and Silicon Valley to Paris and Tel Aviv are creating new solutions that dramatically enhance the customer experience, maximize efficiencies, reduce costs and improve sustainability for organizations across industries.  These young companies need to be heard above the market noise to secure the right customers, partners, influencers and investors necessary to compete and win.

To that end, HKA appointed Mike Kilroy as Group Director, Technology. Kilroy was an integral part of HKA’s previous technology era and is now leading a team that serves the technology clients of today.

HKA is fully committed to meeting the communications needs of emerging technology companies throughout their journey, from their earliest funding rounds to unicorn status and beyond.

A few sectors the HKA team has previously served include:

  • 5G/telecommunications
  • AI/machine learning
  • Cloud
