division to offer clients information on business trends and
developments that impact them and affect their communications
The Fuld arrangement "automatically extends our reach," said Lisa
Richter, SVP and director of Fleishman's Knowledge Solutions group,
which includes competitive intelligence.

Fleishman's competitive intelligence division has eight full-time
