Global communications agency Hill+Knowlton Strategies has restructured, bringing its Europe, Middle East and Africa operations together.

Current present of H+K Europe and chairman of H + K Norway Lars Erik Grønntun will be chairman and CEO of the new EMEA region, effective immediately. Grønntun will report to global chairman and CEO Jack Martin and will remain a member of H+K Strategies' global leadership group. 

“By connecting and unifying the vast EMEA region under Lars Erik we will take advantage of the increased internationalisation of trade and business by becoming more integrated, more competitive, and with much better utilisation of our expertise from around the network,” said Martin.

Sconaid McGeachin remains president for H+K operations in Africa, Middle East & Turkey, reporting to Grønntun.

Grønntun said he was honoured to take on his new role and underlined the importance of the restructure to the company.

“I believe that our understanding of local markets together with our international mind-set and reach is a powerful combination for clients. As such, leading the charge in EMEA is deeply inspiring,” he added.

H+K has also appointed Richard Millar global chair, creative strategy, to spearhead a global creative initiative. He remains CEO of H+K's UK operation and continues to report to Jack Martin.

Hill+Knowlton Strategies provides communications services to local, multinational and global clients. Headquartered in New York, with 89 offices in 52 countries, the agency is part of comms group WPP.
