We have some news — from today FleishmanHillard Fishburn will be known as FleishmanHillard UK.
Over the last five years, the UK operation of FleishmanHillard has become an increasingly important part of the global FleishmanHillard network with members of our team playing a central role in global strategic initiatives as well as leading client campaigns. This was never truer than in 2020, when the arrival of COVID-19 accelerated the trend.
We celebrate the role the UK now plays in one of the world’s largest PR networks and recognize that our clients, wherever they are based in the world, are looking for more fully-integrated, globally-minded campaigns. So it now seems appropriate to transition to the name FleishmanHillard UK. It puts our business at the heart of the future of FleishmanHillard, which is where all our people want to be.
FleishmanHillard UK will continue to be the same full-service integrated UK communications agency delivering public relations, reputation management, brand marketing, digital strategy, social engagement, public affairs, and content strategy to a roster of UK, EMEA and global clients.
“The shift to FleishmanHillard UK is an expression of the agency leaning even further into global comms whether that’s a global view or through the actual work. Ali and I both feel that there’s more that unites us globally with our colleagues as FleishmanHillard than makes us different and this has become particularly apparent in the last year. We have always had our own distinct culture within our office in London. That doesn’t change. We’re adapting and innovating to meet our client’s needs — such as launching our COP26 Unit, for example — and that will remain at the centre of what we do in London and for the network.”
Jim Donaldson, CEO of FleishmanHillard UK.
