LOS ANGELES: Vivendi Universal has chosen GolinHarris for corporate PR work after an extensive RFP process.
Director of corporate communications Flavie Lemarchand-Wood confirmed that the New York office of GH would handle the account, but declined to give further details.
Vivendi owns numerous entertainment companies including Universal Music Group and Vivendi Universal Games. The company also owns an 18.5% stake in NBC Universal.
After recent financial woes, Vivendi has surprised analysts with two strong quarters of growth, spurred in part by success at Universal Music, which holds artists such as Nelly and U2.
