FRANKFURT: Germany’s top three agency, Moritz Hunzinger PR, is

negotiating to buy the 140-strong communications department at one of

the country’s largest life sciences groups, Hoechst.



Hoechst’s PR department, CommServ, was set up as its own profit centre

within the group, under board member and corporate communications

officer Friedmar Nusch. Its operational head is chief operating officer

Joachim Falcke, who reports to Nusch. CommServ is retained by a range of

Hoechst companies and some external customers, including Volkswagen.



’I have spoken to Friedmar Nusch and I am now starting negotiations with

the company,’ said Moritz Hunzinger, founder of the PR agency, which was

floated on the Frankfurt stock exchange in March this year.



If Moritz Hunzinger PR succeeds in buying CommServe, it will rival

Germany’s largest PR agency, Kohtes and Klewes Porter Novelli, in terms

of staff numbers.



Moritz Hunzinger PR already works for the personnel, research and

technology, and manufacturing divisions of Hoechst.
