WASHINGTON, D.C., June 10—Fleishman-Hillard has appointed former U.S. Representative and U.S. trade ambassador C. Donald Johnson as vice chairman of FH/GPC, the firm’s government relations subsidiary in Washington, D.C. 
 
Ambassador Johnson joins a FH/GPC leadership team that includes former U.S. Representatives Rod Chandler (R-Wa.) and Larry LaRocco (D-Id.), and former U.S. Mint director Philip Diehl.
 
Says Diehl, “Don Johnson brings a wealth of expertise in international trade and investment policy to FH/GPC. He is the perfect match to the outstanding team of trade experts we already have in place and will enhance the capabilities and services we offer clients seeking strategic advice and lobbying assistance on trade and investment issues before Congress and the executive branch.”
 
Johnson joins FH/GPC from the law firm of Patton Boggs, where he was a partner. His practice is focused on public policy and international business transactions, especially international trade and investment policy where he provides advice and guidance to both international and domestic clients.
 
From 1998 to 2000 Johnson held the rank of Ambassador while serving as chief textile negotiator in the Office of the United States Trade Representative. He was the principal adviser to President Clinton on all textile and apparel trade matters and led all negotiations relating to trade agreements and World Trade Organization disputes concerning textiles and apparel.
