ICCO Announces Global Expansion Plan


Speaking at today’s International Communications Consultancy Organisation (ICCO) Global Summit in New Delhi, ICCO President David Gallagher announced an ambitious global expansion plan, built around a new regional structure. Opening the annual gathering, Ketchum Europe CEO Gallagher said: “ICCO is in rude health, and well-positioned to lead our industry over what is certain to be dynamic future.” “At our board meeting yesterday, we approved a proposal to commence a global expansion plan, one designed to serve three large purposes:” “1. First, to better serve national associations and their agency members through the formation of six regional structures, allowing more collaboration and interaction among agencies, more leadership opportunities for individuals and greater reach into both established and emerging PR markets.” “2. Second, to foster the development of national associations where none exist, and to incorporate existing associations into the ICCO community.” “3. And third, to further solidify our truly global voice for the PR consultancy industry by strengthening our global structure, while adding these additional regional elements.” “We will begin a consultation process with member associations, prospective members associations and industry leaders where no associations exist in the coming months, and you will see a brief paper on the process on the ICCO website shortly. We will look forward to your input as this exciting new phase evolves.” The ICCO World Summit launches today in the Shangri-La hotel in New Delhi, and will feature presentations from the top PR practitioners including Fred Cook (CEO, Golin), Bob Pickard (Chairman, Huntsworth plc Asia-Pacific) and Tim Sutton (Chairman, Weber Shandwick Asia-Pacific).
