CHARLOTTE—Fleishman-Hillard International Communications is opening an office in Charlotte to “more effectively serve the North and South Carolina markets,” the firm says.
Led by senior vice president and general manager John Falkenbury, the office “will give clients in the Carolinas access to [Fleishman’s] global capabilities,” including financial communications, homeland security services, legislative affairs, investor relations, and healthcare communications.
Falkenbury served more than 20 years in the U.S. Army, on assignments throughout the United States and in Germany. Upon leaving active service, he returned home to North Carolina to become the president and CEO of Five Oaks Nursing Center in Concord, managing partner of the Falkenbury Family and president of the Stephen D. Falkenbury Jr. Foundation in Charlotte.
“Charlotte’s prominence as a banking center, a home to many Fortune 500 companies, and a recognized leader in homeland security preparation has made it an emerging hub for economic development,” says FH Mid-Atlantic regional president Paul Johnson.
