The account had been worth dollars 60,000 a month, occasionally reaching

dollars 90,000 with special projects. While Weber president and CEO

Marijean Lauzier declined to comment on the value of the account, she

said it was among the firm’s 15 biggest in terms of client billings.



According to Lauzier, Citrix had been ramping up its in-house staff over

the past six months. The company hired Joe Horine as its director of

worldwide corporate communication from NCR, and added former Compaq pro

Douglas Wheeler as SVP of marketing last month.



’When Joe came in, he very enthusiastically pursued building an in-house

PR department, and he prefers to work with agencies on a project basis,’

said Lauzier.
