DUBAI—Four Communications, the U.K.-based marketing and communications agency, has expanded its Gulf region senior management team with the appointment of three new directors—Kate Bermon, Margaret Flanagan and John Rynehart—who join the company’s Abu Dhabi and Dubai offices. The expansion follows a series of major new account wins in 2008, including Abu Dhabi Finance, Abu Dhabi Music & Arts Festival, Abu Dhabi Airports Company, Azizi Investments, Bahrain Logistics Zone, Cirque de Soleil and Omran, the Omani tourism development company.
Bermon is a real estate marketing specialist, having held a number of senior in-house and agency roles, including marketing director of international property marketing company, PURE International. Flanagan, who re-joins the team after an in-house secondment with client Nakheel, will lead communications strategies for existing and new clients and also expand the company’s arts capacity. Rynehart, formerly with Fortune Promoseven in Dubai, will spearhead Four’s sports and sponsorship offering in the region.
Four Communications has been based in the Gulf since 2005 and now has a team of 30 in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
