PARIS: Firefly, one of the top UK hi-tech agencies, is expanding
its reach with the opening of an office in France.
The Paris outpost opens next week under the leadership of Laurent
Durgeat, who joined Firefly/London last year from French agency
Durgeat will report to Firefly director David Hargreaves and oversee a
staff of four. Three clients have already been lined up: IT firm Cincom
(fees of approximately dollars 160,000); global telecom company KSCL;
and Red Hat, the distributor of computer operating system Linux.
Firefly is also recruiting a senior PR professional to head a German
outpost, which it plans to open later in 2000. This will up the firm’s
number of wholly-owned offices to four. Firefly opened a Scottish office
in Glasgow last year.
