Kevin Bell, Fleishman-Hillard’s regional president for the UK, Africa and the Middle East, is stepping down from his post after giving six months notice. He’s been with the firm for a decade.

There is a leadership team in place for Bell’s departure. Richard Kanareck joined the firm yesterday as head of the London office. Elaine McKean heads the office in Edinburgh, Annalise Coady leads Middle East operations, and Kevin Welman is head of the Africa operations.
