LONDON: Fleishman-Hillard has completed its lengthy search for a UK MD by appointing eBay’s Richard Kanareck to the role.
Kanareck departs eBay after four years , most recently as European communications director. He succeeds Lucien Vallun, who took charge of F-H’s Central and Eastern European operations earlier this year.
Prior to joining eBay, Kanareck spent a decade at the Red Consultancy. At F-H, he will report to UK, Africa and Middle East president Kevin Bell.
Vallun held the UK MD role for two and a half years, after moving from F-H’s South Africa office in 2007.
