March 2004
Media: Asia's Media & Marketing Newspaper;3/12/2004, p3
Advertising agency FCB regional president and chief executive officer Ben Barnes has been given the additional responsibility of Africa, following the retirement of the agency's international president and CEO Harry Reid. The move splits Reid's remit into two, with Europe chief Scott Hollingsworth now also overseeing Latin America and the Middle East. Barnes will continue to be based in Hong Kong, China, while Hollingsworth's base will remain in London, England. The pair will report directly to FCB worldwide CEO Brendan Ryan. FCB is the largest agency in Asia, from a billings point of view, with South Africa being one of the more significant markets.
