FleishmanHillard’s Lynne Anne Davis Named Cannes PR Jury President
ST. LOUIS, Dec. 11, 2014 — Lynne Anne Davis, FleishmanHillard’s president of Asia Pacific, has been named jury president for the PR category at the 2015 Cannes International Festival of Creativity. The festival will be held June 21-27.
“PR is at the heart of the world’s greatest campaigns,” said Davis. “It’s a highly dynamic discipline that is constantly elevating its power by making emotional connections, revealing human truths, opening minds, touching hearts and inspiring action in groundbreaking ways.”
The role follows FleishmanHillard’s recent title of “Asia Pacific Network of the Year” from PRWeek. Davis, who joined the agency in 1990 and assumed Asia Pacific regional responsibilities in 2001, also recently served as PR jury head at the 2013 Spikes Asia Festival of Creativity, was named “Global Women’s Champion” by the National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) and received a 2013 SABRE Award for Individual Achievement from The Holmes Report.
