Gillespie Trades Midtown for Midwest

Fleishman Hillard’s global project manager for Samsung HQ Mobile, SAP and Western Union has joined Kohnstamm Communications as an Account Director for the agency’s Business and Professional Services Group, reporting to VP Aaron Berstler. Luke Gillespie, who was one of the first employees with respected NY boutique PR firm Allison+Partners before FH, is a DePaul University grad who wished to return to his Midwest roots, and enjoyed discovering the hands-on approach taken at Kohnstamm. Allison+Partners tripled in revenue over the course of Gillespie’s time there, working with clients ranging from the National Restaurant Association to UL and Fiserv. He started his career as an editor for Business Media Publications and as a freelance journalist for the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Reader.
