Ex-White House aide Rubin joins Brunswick team

Brunswick is making good on its promise to hire staff for expansion

into foreign markets by making US political PR guru James Rubin a

partner.



The former Bill Clinton administration aide started this week and is

tasked with building the agency's client portfolio in the US and

Europe.



Brunswick founder Alan Parker said last year he planned up to a dozen

major hires in order to conquer Europe and expand in the US beyond the

agency's New York office (PRWeek, 20 October 2000).



Rubin served as assistant secretary of state for public affairs during

the last three years of Clinton's time in office. He also acted as chief

spokesman for Madeleine Albright's state department and earned fame

briefing US reporters during Nato's military campaign in Kosovo in

1999.



Rubin acted as spokesman for the Clinton/Gore democrat ticket in the

1996 presidential ballot. From 1993 until 1996 he was spokesman for

Albright during her tenure as US representative to the United

Nations.



Rubin has been based in London since 2000 because of his marriage to CNN

correspondent Christiane Amanpour.



At Brunswick he will report to managing partner James Bradley and will

work 'almost full-time,' according to Bradley.
