Tony Langham’s Thoughts on Change in the PR Industry

Writing on the PR Week website, Lansons Chief Executive and Founder Tony Langham gives his thoughts on the recent news of the merger between Fishburn Hedges and Fleishman Hillard…

Fishburn Hedges was crucial in our industry’s journey from PR to reputation management; from siloed advice to holistic, integrated advice. Created from the wreckage of Valin Pollen, Fishburn Hedges, to borrow a Blue Rubicon phrase, helped teach our industry how to think. 

And everything was beautifully crafted, beginning with their simple launch letter 25 years ago. 

Their strategic ideas were not only good, but they sounded and looked better than everyone else’s. For a decade they rightly swept the industry’s awards before them – and in Neil Hedges they were led by someone who personifies the best in our business.
