Ruder Finn has acquired Israeli PR agency Charles Levine
Communications, just one month after purchasing Tel Aviv-based Access.
Both agencies will be known as Ruder Finn, and the combined 15-strong
team will be the largest PR operation in Israel. Both companies are now
wholly owned by Ruder Finn.
Jeff Kahn, chief strategic officer for Ruder Finn, said the agency wants
to exploit the fact that Jerusalem has the largest concentration of
media correspondents outside Washington. ’We plan to work in
co-operation with affiliates in the Arab world, including Egypt and
Saudi Arabia,’ he said.
