Ogilvy PR Worldwide's growth has been strong in traditional markets, with Washington DC, the west of America and London leading the way.

The agency made a raft of senior hires including the recruitment of Hill & Knowlton's Stuart Smith as MD of the global corporate practice and interim regional CEO, EMEA.

Meanwhile Jennifer Risi joined from Weber Shandwick as EV-P of media influence and director of content creation in New York; and Brenda Daly, the former comms director for house speaker Nancy Pelosi, joined the Washington office as EV-P and national director of public affairs.

Negative media coverage of Mexico led to the agency's largest new business win of the period - a brief from the Government of Mexico to change perceptions around violence in the country.

Other key client wins included global accounts with Pfizer, Ford and LG.

The agency launched a comprehensive social media training programme for all 1,800 employees worldwide and an online site called Insider Circle that offers clients more direct access to key influencers.
