HONG KONG: Fleishman-Hillard has launched its first interactive
practice outside the US to serve as a regional hub for Asia. The
practice will offer web design, content management, on-line
communications and research. David Wickenden, head of F-H's global
interactive practice, said the launch was driven by demand from clients.
Lee Ferrell and Alex Lanceley will head the practice. Hong Kong becomes
F-H's fifth interactive office, with London and Toronto offerings
planned next year.
