SAN FRANCISCO: Fleishman-Hillard has promoted Kelly McGinnis to GM of its Bay Area office. McGinnis, who was deputy GM, will report to West Coast president Curt Kundred, who was promoted to that position last month. Kundred was the previous San Francisco GM.
McGinnis began her career in Fleishman?s St. Louis office and worked in the agency?s San Antonio office as well. She then joined Drugstore.com as director of corporate communications, before rejoining Fleishman in the San Francisco office three years ago.
?She is the most deserving person for this [promotion],? said Kundred. ?She is one of the reasons why this office continued to grow in an economic downturn over the last three years.?
Clients of the Bay Area office include SBC, Sun Microsystems, Yahoo, and Netflix.
