NEW YORK: Allison+Partners has expanded to the French market by opening offices in Paris and Lyon.
Associate directors Isabelle Dejeux and Yann Le Flohic will lead both offices, focusing on client service and raising awareness of the firm across Europe. They will both work closely with Allison’s London office, the firm said in a statement, as well as its Asian and European agency networks.
Before joining Allison, Dejeux launched a boutique firm with offices in Lyon and Paris that she sold to Nouveau Monde DDB Group and later led DDB’s PR department. She has worked with clients including Starbucks, Moneygram, and Johnson & Johnson.
Le Flohic has worked at agencies Trimedia, Harvard PR, Ogilvy PR, and DDB PR after starting his career at Alcatel UK. He has worked with clients including Sony, FM Global, Thomson Reuters, and Sharp.
Allison’s 2013 revenue increased 21.8% year-over-year compared with 2012 to $28.8 million, with nearly all of those billings coming from the US.
