Finsbury Glover Hering has signed a $1.2M one-year strategic communications & government affairs pact with the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The firm also will provide research, website services and collateral development to advance DRC’s engagement with the US Millennium Challenge Corp. and other organizations in order to promote its economic objectives.

The contract, which was signed April 5, prohibits the DRC from hiring any FGH staffer working on the account for a year following termination of the contract.

FGH has Brett O’Brien, Lars Anderson, Lindsay Lee Plack and Phillip Carter working on the DRC business.
