MADRID: Fleishman-Hillard has absorbed its Spanish affiliate to

open the agency’s eighth European office in Madrid.



The joint managing directors of F-H’s former affiliate Circulo Cinco,

will now both work as board directors. Carlos Schroeder and Daniel Linos

will report to the newly-appointed managing director, Spanish PR veteran

Jan Soderberg. He joins F-H from the board of top ten Spanish agency

Grupo K Comunicacion. Before that he spent seven years as managing

director of Hill and Knowlton in Spain.



He will now report to Jack Modzelewski, F-H Europe’s London-based

president.



Aimed at exploiting the recent growth of the Spanish economy, the office

is also expected to link with F-H’s more established operations across

central and south America.



Clients for the new office, all formerly of Circulo Cinco, include

Rolls-Royce, Goldman Sachs and aircraft engineering giant Lockheed

Martin. Other clients include credit card company Visa Espana and beer

giant Anheuser-Busch.



The move brings to 47 the number of F-H branches worldwide.
