NEW YORK & DALLAS: Edelman last week filled two high-profile

vacancies, naming Miller Bonner Jr. as GM of technology and co-chair of

the global technology sector and Samuel Falcona as director of its Texas

operations.



Bonner takes over for Steve Hoechster, who left the New York technology

post several months ago to become VP of communications for Qwest

Communications.



He will start full-time on November 1 and will lead a staff of six VPs

and 40 PR pros.



In addition to fostering a team environment, Bonner said one of his

goals is to encourage convergence between Edelman’s different sectors.

’Clients want hi-tech to work with consumer, healthcare and investor

relations,’ said Bonner. ’They expect seamless coordination across

practice areas and geographies.’



Falcona, a Chicago native, takes over as Texas managing director on

November 1. He replaces John Holland, who took a job in Gavin Anderson’s

Hong Kong office.



Falcona leaves behind his own consultancy, Alert Five

Communications.



Previously, he served 20 years as a Navy public affairs officer before

moving through PR positions at Sears and Unicom Corp.
