Hanover buys Bell Pottinger's Middle East business

DUBAI (Reuters) - Bell Pottinger’s Middle East business has been sold to a subsidiary of London-headquartered public relations firm Hanover Group, the new owner said in a statement on Monday.

The value of the acquisition by Hanover Middle East was not disclosed.

Bell Pottinger’s British arm collapsed in September after the global public relations agency’s clients deserted it over a racially-charged political campaign it ran in South Africa.
