Public relations shop Fleishman-Hillard hired former Bronx Borough President Fernando Ferrer as co-chairman in New York.
The move comes as the
unit merged the government relations business units of Mercury Public Affairs and Fleishman-Hillard Government Relations in Washington, D.C., Albany, and New York City under the Fleishman-Hillard Government Relations brand.
"We are thrilled to welcome Freddy Ferrer into the Fleishman-Hillard family as we continue to build a bi-partisan, best-in-class government relations operation," the flacks said. "Freddy is a class act who knows New York inside and out. His insights into the issues important to all New Yorkers, as well as his knowledge of the key decision-makers and their priorities, will be invaluable to our clients in New York and Washington."
