LONDON—Weber Shandwick has hired Adam Clyne as EMEA head of digital, filling a role that has remained vacant for 12 months.
Clyne joins from TVC Group, where he was commercial director and international MD, responsible for expanding the firm into the US after its sale to the Economist Group.
Weber Shandwick's EMEA digital leadership was previously held by Fiona Battle who left the firm in late 2013, following the earlier exit of her predecessor, James Warren.
"The more companies build content-driven PR and marketing programs, the greater the need to deliver with exponential inventiveness, flair and impact. Adam’s track record breaking new creative ground to drive business results speaks for itself,” said Chris Perry, global president of digital at Weber Shandwick.
Prior to joining TVC in 2009, Clyne served as MD and commercial director at Geronimo Communications (now Kindred). Earlier, he founded integrated creative agency The Lab, which merged with Geronimo.
Weber Shandwick's digital offering includes content arm Mediaco and GoLive, the firm’s real-time production and live-streaming capability.
The SABRE Awards is the world's largest PR awards program, running across six continents. 2016 details now available.
