The federal government recently re-upped with Ogilvy for its

school-to-work initiative, which is administered by the Department of

Education.



The dollars 500,000 annual contract involves helping manage the

initiative’s learning center and developing outreach programs to

educators and business partnerships. To lead the account, the agency has

hired Ed Grocholski, who was formerly director of communications for

Junior Achievement.



Former InterScience staffer Kristina Becker has also joined the firm,

serving as an account supervisor in its health and medical practice.

Becker has been assigned to Ogilvy’s Glaxo Wellcome business.



Other key hires include account supervisors Rebecca Villarreal and Lisa

Kovner; SAEs Tracy Glass and Christopher Hamilton; and AEs John

Alejandro, Rachel Torres and John Blacksten.



President Marcia Silverman recently told PRWeek that the firm’s

Washington billings are running an estimated 30% ahead of last year’s

dollars 16.2 million total.
