Copenhagen, Denmark, February 15th, 2021 – Under the name FCB Health &Robin, &Robin has been selected as the Nordic Partner of FCB Health Europe and will immediately begin servicing the Nordic region for FCB Health’s global clients. &Robin will continue to operate and serve its clients as it does today, while FCB Health &Robin will focus on servicing Nordic affiliates of FCB Health’s global clients.

“We are very happy to have such a great team in Copenhagen to meet the region’s health communications needs. Alan, Ulrik, Kelly and Kristian combine great expertise and strengthen our offer as a group,” says Jörg Hempelmann, President, FCB Health Europe.
