The MD of Weber Shandwick Ireland, Siobhan Molloy, FPRII, (above), has acquired the business from its owner Interpublic Group (IPG) for an undisclosed sum in a management buy-out.  The agency will be independent from IPG and serve as Weber Shandwick partner in Ireland. “This deal is a win-win for both our clients and staff. We have local autonomy for the business, whilst staying close to our expert colleagues across the Weber Shandwick world. To be able to make this change with the support and partnership of IPG and Weber Shandwick’s senior management team reflects the progressive leadership of the company,” said Siobhan.
