Three global industry leaders to receive ICCO Hall of Fame recognition

 Three global industry leaders have been chosen to join the International Communications Consultancy Organisation’s (ICCO) International Hall of Fame.

Introduced in 2003, ICCO’s Hall of Fame represents an exclusive recognition of the exceptional progress its members have made towards the internationalisation of the public relations industry.

The inductees are Karen Van Bergen, Chief Executive Officer, Omnicom Public Relations Group; Jack Martin, Global Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Hill+Knowlton Strategies; and David Gallagher, President, Growth and Development, International, Omnicom Public Relations Group.

These people have enhanced the discipline and expanded the scope of public relations activity globally.

The group was inducted into the Hall of Fame following the official announcement at the ICCO Global Awards 2016 at the St Pancras Renaissance hotel on 1st December.

Maxim Behar, President, ICCO, said: “The ICCO Hall of Fame is filled with great names – people who are our mentors, often teachers, and advisers, but mostly colleagues and partners. Each of them has great input in the development of the Public Relations business on a global scale, but what is most important is that each of them continues to spread new visions and are leaders in the professional community. We are proud to have them in our Wall of Fame among the most important personalities in the global PR business for the past 30 years.”

Francis Ingham MPRCA, Chief Executive, ICCO, said: “It is a real pleasure to welcome this year’s inductees into the ICCO Hall of Fame. Each of these individuals provide thought leadership within the PR and communications industry and are well deserving of this accolade.”
