They said the agency would be dead and buried when FleishmanHillard and Fishburn merged. They were wrong. Five years on, despite Covid, 2020 was the best year on record. Financial performance outpaced the market, the work won 19 awards, 45 new joiners strapped in, scores of clients signed up and we celebrated achieving the National Equality Standard. That’s why we dropped the F-bomb. FleishmanHillard Fishburn finally said goodbye to the last F with absolutely no ripple in the market. An acknowledgment, we like to think, of the agency we’ve become.
