Linda Smith and Duncan Fulton assume new roles at Fleishman-Hillard Canada



    Management Changes Build Upon 2007 Success

    TORONTO, Jan. 18 /CNW/ - Fleishman-Hillard Canada today announced that
Linda Smith has assumed a new North American role focused on new-business
development and growth while Duncan Fulton takes on the role of General
Manager and Senior Partner at Fleishman-Hillard Toronto. The senior management
changes, the firm said, are designed to build upon a year of outstanding
client work, significant new business wins, and solid growth.
    Smith founded Fleishman-Hillard Toronto 14 years ago and led
Fleishman-Hillard into one of the leading agencies in Canada today.
    Fulton brings a pan-Canadian perspective to Fleishman-Hillard Toronto,
after managing and working on some of Fleishman-Hillard Canada's largest
accounts and playing senior roles across several of the firm's practices for
the past five years. Before joining Fleishman-Hillard, he was a communications
advisor and spokesman for Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chrétien, Press
Secretary for now-Premier Dalton McGuinty, and communications assistant for
former-Premier Frank McKenna in New Brunswick.
    "Today's leadership changes focus Duncan's and Linda's greatest talents
on continuing our growth in Toronto and on providing the very best service to
our valued clients," said Curt Kundred, Regional President. "We will continue
to grow the most integrated communications firm in the market, delivering a
full-service client offering, backed by our comprehensive global network of 80
offices."
