turn for the worse last week when GM Jeff Raleigh quit the post after

only nine months to return to the West Coast office.



Raleigh becomes the third GM to leave the New York office in three

years.



He had replaced Scott Tagliarino, who filled the role for more than a

year before departing to Gavin Anderson. Tagliarino’s predecessor, Mary

Ellen Keating, held the position for six months before joining Barnes &

Noble.



’There is always speculation when there is change, but there will be

continuity since I’m not leaving the company,’ Raleigh said, adding that

he will be returning to the San Francisco office to assemble a team for

the firm’s newly won Compaq business. Deputy GM Nicole Russell followed

Raleigh out the door, joining FitzGerald Communications as a VP (see

news story, p3).



H&K president and CEO Tom Hoog will temporarily fill the position until

the search is concluded.



H&K has, however, stabilized its leadership in other key markets

recently.



Harlan Teller handed over the reigns to Gene Reineke in Chicago last

week (PRWeek, Nov. 1), while Torie Clarke joins the DC office today as

GM (PRWeek, Oct. 18). The DC office had been run by Tom Buckmaster, now

president of Edelman’s New York office.
