LG Display, the LG Group unit that leads in the manufacture of LCDs, has chosen Burson-Marsteller as its global PR firm. The decision comes after a competitive review. Hill & Knowlton (now Hill + Knowlton Strategies) was the incumbent firm. According to The Holmes Report, the shift takes place one year after H&K was selected. The account was worth $300,000. B-M also works with LG Mobile.
