Fleishman-Hillard France has appointed Renaud Augustin as its
managing director. Augustin was previously director of corporate
communications for ceramics company Villeroy and Boch for six years.
Before that he founded and directed PR agency Infoplan. He succeeds Anne
Froger who quit the agency last year and moved to the US. She was
appointed in 1995 after her predecessor Francois Giannesini was promoted
managing director of Fleishman-Hillard Europe. ’The reason it took us a
long time to find a replacement is that we wanted to find a really good
professional practitioner,’ said Giannesini.
