NEW YORK: Five global industry leaders have been chosen to join the International Communications Consultancy Organisation's (ICCO) International Hall of Fame.
The inductees include Daniel Edelman, founder and chairman of Edelman; John Graham, chairman and CEO of Fleishman-Hillard; Germany-based Paul Kohtes, founder of Pleon Kohtes Klewes; India-based Prema Sagar, principal and founder of Genesis Public Relations; and France-based Jean-Pierre Beaudoin, MD of I & E Consultants.
The group will be inducted into the Hall of Fame during the ICCO Global Summit, set to take place in Prague, Czech Republic, from October 20 to 21.
"Like the inaugural members of the ICCO Hall of Fame, these five individuals have made significant contributions not only to their national PR industries, but on an international basis, too," said Simon Quarendon, ICCO secretary.
Produced in association with PRWeek, the summit will include speakers from such companies as The Body Shop, British American Tobacco, and MasterCard International.
