Citigate has recruited Berkeley PR regional director Philip Szomszor, who also led the digital and client services divisions of the tech and B2B agency. Szomszor is now a director in Citigate's corporate technology practice, responsible for driving new business and directing existing accounts, including Fujitsu Siemens Computers and Hitachi.
Citigate corporate MD Jonathan Flint said the appointment was aimed at improving the agency's digital campaigns and cited Szomszor's experience in the digital comms sector.
Citigate recently bucked an industry-wide trend with an appointment to oversee comms for this year's largest European IPO to date (PRWeek, 22 May). It is advising Portuguese clean energy company EDP Renovaveis ahead of its 4 June listing on Euronext Lisbon.
