HONG KONG: Fleishman-Hillard has ended its six-month search for a

new general manager of its Hong Kong office with the promotion of senior

vice-president Lynne Anne Stevenson to the post.



Stevenson takes over from Tony Phillips, who left at the end of April, a

year after he sold a majority of the agency he founded, Message

Management, to F-H (PR Week, 20 March).



Stevenson will report to executive vice-president and director of the

Asia-Pacific region, Rick Sullivan, who has been acting general manager

of the Hong Kong operation since Phillips’ departure.



She has worked for F-H for nine years, starting in the agency’s St Louis

headquarters. She was sent to Hong Kong 18 months ago with a brief to

strengthen the agency’s consumer and hi-tech base. F-H’s books were

until recently dominated by clients inthe aviation sector, including

United Airlines and Lufthansa.



- Ten days prior to Stevenson taking over, fellow senior vice-president

and head of F-H’s aviation practice, Blaise Hopkinson, left the agency

after eight months to pursue other opportunities in Hong Kong.
