Bailey is now the managing director of the firm’s corporate practice in London, while Hartt will lead its portfolio of geopolitical clients in London.

Jim Donaldson, CEO of FleishmanHillard in London, said: “We’re so proud of the stunning success of our corporate practice in London and we owe a debt of gratitude to all that Steph has done to drive that. This is a richly deserved promotion.”

He added: “We’re particularly pleased to have Michael Hartt join us next week to extend the exciting work we’re doing in the geopolitical arena.”

Bailey’s promotion recognises the leadership she has shown in growing the business into the largest corporate practice in the FleishmanHillard global network.

Previously, Hartt worked at Burson-Marsteller developing its international affairs offering. His experience includes overseeing political affairs, public affairs and PR strategy and implementation for a range of international clients.

Meanwhile, FleishmanHillard Fishburn’s UK head of public affairs, Michelle Di Leo, will be leaving at the end of the month to partner with Jo Tanner at iNHouse Cominications.

The agency is in the process of recruiting a successor. It says it remains very committed growing its PA offering in London in partnership with FleishmanHillard’s offices in Brussels, Washington DC and around the world.

Donaldson said he was sad to see Di Leo go and thanked her for the “brilliant contribution” she has made to the business.
