WASHINGTON, DC: SWR Worldwide has opened offices in London, Minneapolis and New York, as the polling firm attempts to integrate further into the Shandwick network.

SWR is the amalgamation of the research operations of Shandwick and The Cassidy Companies, the DC lobbying and public affairs conglomerate that Shandwick merged with last year. Until now, it operated only in Washington, DC and Boston.

SWR chairman and CEO Greg Schneiders emphasized that the firm is not done with expanding. 'We hope to have a Los Angeles office open by the end of the year. Next year we are looking at another office in Europe and maybe three or four new ones in the US.'

SWR senior vice president Phil Riggins has been tapped to head the new London office, with former Penn, Schoen and Berland VP Bernard Whitman running the firm's New York office.

Tapped to lead Minneapolis is Dr. Cathy Wisner, a former independent consultant on survey research for SmithKline Beecham.
