Edelman, the world’s largest public relations firm, has acquired
KComms GmbH in Zurich. Alexander Fink, the former CEO of K Comms, will be in charge of thenewly created Edelman Schweiz. In the French speaking part of Switzerland, the newly createdagency will continue the co-operation with FTC Communication, based in Lausanne. EdelmanSwitzerland currently employs seven employees and serves a broad range of national andinternational clients.Fink will serve as the
new head of Edelman’s
corporate practice for Germany, Switzerland andAustria, as well as deputy head of the practice in the Europe/Middle East/Africa region. He will alsobecome a member of the German management team.For Robert Phillips, president and CEO, Edelman EMEA, the establishment of a Swiss presencemarks an important strategic step for the agency. Phillips sees the need to build up a wholly ownedorganization in Switzerland, a strategic market with many global headquarters, including globalEdelman clients."We are happy that through the team of Alexander Fink we are present for our existing Swissinternational clients with our own office and can therefore combine local and global know-how from
one source,” said Phillips. “The opening of Edelman Switzerland comes off the back of a very strong
business performance in 2011 across the region, despite what are clearly troubled economic times.Many of our European offices have experienced double-digit growth, led by Germany, the UAE, theNetherlands, the UK and Spain. We are determined to continue to dimensionalise our business in
order to offer best thinking and best quality to our clients.”
 Fink is lo
oking forward to the opportunities the integration into the Edelman network will bring: “This
marks a milestone in the development of our agency and opens up great new perspectives for
clients and employees.”
