Fleishman-Hillard Inc. is a public relations and marketing agency founded and based in St. Louis, Missouri. It was acquired by Omnicom Group in 1997,[3] becoming part of the Diversified Agency Services (DAS) division.[4] The company was founded in 1946 by Alfred Fleishman and Bob Hillard.[5] For more than twenty years, its customer base was largely limited to regional clients.[5]

In 1994, the company expanded its operations to the Asia Pacific region with an office in Beijing.[6] In May 2013, the company rebranded its name to FleishmanHillard and launched the slogan "the Power of True".[7] As of August 2013, the company had 111 offices in 29 countries across the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East, and Africa.[8]
