JERUSALEM, Feb. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Finn Partners, a Ruder Finn Group company, has been selected as Debby Communications' international public relations partner for Facing Tomorrow 2012, the Fourth Annual Israeli Presidential Conference under the auspices of President Shimon Peres. Finn Partners will work in tandem with both Debby Communications and Ron Shelly of Megaphone, who has been selected by Debby Communications to manage the conference's digital media.


The conference is scheduled for June 19 – 21, 2012, in Jerusalem, and will be held in partnership with Hebrew University. Finn Partners' Israel office will lead the account.

"Over the last few years, the Israeli Presidential Conference has become the most important event for world and Jewish leaders to gather together in order to explore internationally relevant political, economic and Jewish world issues and address solutions that will lead to a better tomorrow for the State of Israel, the Jewish people, and all of humanity," said Israel Maimon, chairman of the Steering Committee for the 2012 Israeli Presidential Conference.

As with past conferences, the 2012 Israeli Presidential Conference is expected to attract over 4,500 attendees from around the world, including world leaders, intellectuals, scientists, artists, spiritual leaders, entrepreneurs and economists.  Among the expected speakers are Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu; Sir James Wolfensohn, Founder, CEO and Chairman, Wolfensohn & Company and former President, The World Bank; Mr. Paul Jacobs, Chairman & CEO of QUALCOMM; Dr. Henry A. Kissinger, Former National Security Advisor and Secretary of State; and Professor Stanley Fischer, Governor of the Bank of Israel.

The Finn Partners Israel team, selected as the Conference's international public relations partner for the second consecutive year, will be responsible for all international and Jewish media outreach, and will assist with social media and strategic marketing activities for the conference. Matthew Krieger will lead the Finn Partners conference team, and Elie Klein will manage the Jewish world and social media components of the program.

"Being selected as the Israeli Presidential Conference's international media relations partner even once was a tremendous honor for our team," said Glenn Jasper, senior partner and managing director of Finn Partners Israel. "But it is far more gratifying to know that our work was respected enough to be invited back for a second year of partnership.  Our team is excited to get to work and exceed our client's expectations."
