Scott Rhodie appointed Fleishman-Hillard’s VP of digital media

Scott Rhodie Fleishman-HillardScott Rhodie has been appointed by PR agency Fleishman-Hillard Sydney as vice president of digital media.

Rhodie, who co-presents the weekly Mumbrellacast – moves from PR agency House Party which he launched last year as a spin-off from digital agency HotHouse. He is also a member of Sydney’s Digital Citizens committee and the co-founder of Sydney’s weekly social media gathering #shtbox – Surry Hills Twitter Beer eXchange.

Before moving into public relations, Rhodie was a journalist for Rupert Murdoch’s flagship British tabloid The Sun and for Scotland On Sunday. In Australia he has worked for PR agencies including Zing, Pulse and Network PR.

Rhodie’s appointment is the second to that role at Fleishman-Hillard. Kylie Johnson was given the same role at the agency late last year, but was unable to relocate for personal reasons and departed after a few months.  

Walter Jennings, GM of Fleishman-Hillard Sydney, said of Rhodie: “He is one of Australia’s most prominent and vocal netizens, and he has great perspectives on how to navigate in the digital world. Scott further strengthens our offering in Australia, as he joins an established global network of digital communicators.”

Rhodie said:  “I am very excited about the variety of clients I have the opportunity to work with, and I’m looking forward to collaborating with my digital colleagues throughout the Fleishman-Hillard global network.”
