John Graham, chairman at FleishmanHillard, is the most recent Fellow to be appointed by the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA).
Graham joined FleishmanHillard in 1966, was elected vice president, director and senior partner in 1970, president and CEO in 1974 and chairman in 1988.
During his career, Graham has worked across many aspects of PR and communications, including public affairs, financial strategy, corporate strategy, investor relations, crisis situations, employee relations, strategic media placement, opinion research and issues management.
PRCA Fellowships are awarded to individuals who have made a major contribution to the PR and communications industry, and are selected according to the joint recommendation of the chairman of Fellows, the board chairman and the director general of the PRCA. Those recommendations are voted on by the PRCA board.
David Gallagher, international president for growth and development at Omnicom Public Relations Group and chairman of the PRCA Fellows, said: “It is a great pleasure to announce that John Graham is the latest Fellow of the PRCA. He is now part of the UK’s most elite body of PR and communications practitioners.”
