Interpublic is selling Weber Shandwick’s Ireland operations to local management.
Siobhán Molloy, managing director of the business in Ireland, will take over the Dublin-based operation, while Ross Williamson is acquiring the Belfast office in Northern Ireland.
“Operating as an independent agency will provide us with additional opportunities and agility to develop our business in this market while remaining as the Irish partner to the international Weber Shandwick network, which has served us well for the last 20 years,” said Molloy.
Weber Shandwick Ireland serves clients such as Amazon Prime, Nestle, Irish Hotels Federation, Ardmore and Ericsson.
It launched in 1989 as Financial & Corporate Communications and became part of Weber Shandwick in 2000.
