CHICAGO: Fleishman-Hillard’s Chicago office has captured around

dollars 1.8 million in new accounts from three clients signed in late

August, resulting in a staffing growth spurt that has led to the

addition of five new senior executives.



The new client wins include: Toronto-based Moore Corp., which has

entrusted Fleishman with IR, reputation management and employee

communication assignments (dollars 850,000); Niles, IL-based Ha-Lo

Industries, for repositioning the former promotional products company as

a full-service brand marketing operation (dollars 700,000); and Ann

Arbor, MI-based E-Chemicals, for the launch of a new e-commerce site

(dollars 300,000).



Mike Barrett, director of corporate communications for Moore, said he

selected Fleishman over five other suitors because the firm could handle

a range of PR assignments and do IT work in both the US and Canada.

Fleishman replaces Golin/Harris as Moore’s chief PR voice.



According to Chicago office GM Robert McEwen, the three new accounts are

ideal long-term clients for Fleishman. ’It’s not like they’re calling us

at 4:45 on a Friday asking for just a news release,’ he joked.
