SAN DIEGO and SACRAMENTO: Fleishman-Hillard has promoted two employees to oversee the agency's San Diego and Sacramento offices.
SVP and partner Melissa Schoeb will transfer from the San Francisco office to serve as GM of the San Diego office. Schoeb joined Fleishman in 1998 from Nortel Networks.
Schoeb replaces Michael Busselen, who left the agency in late April to join Solectron as VP of corporate communications.
In Sacramento, Dan Barber takes over as GM. Barber has been with Fleishman for 11 years, most recently as an SVP and senior partner in the agency's St. Louis headquarters.
Barber replaces John Segale, who left in mid-April to start his own agency, Precision PR.
