DC office managing director Joe Gleason, placing him in charge of an

acquisition-minded public affairs growth strategy.



Gleason, who has directed the firm’s public affairs practice since 1989,

will attempt to develop strategies and identify attractive targets for

acquisitions. While he will still have day-to-day management

responsibilities, he will focus on growth opportunities.



Brian Gaudet, recently promoted to SVP of creative and strategic

development, stressed the importance of having a strong public affairs

presence in the nation’s capital. ’To really have an impact in DC, we

have to expand our capabilities in that area,’ he said. ’We’ve got to

keep up.’



MS&L/DC has also increased the duties of SVP Don Hannaford, who assumes

more day-to-day management responsibility in the post of COO. Hannaford

has handled the agency’s Eli Lilly business and its public affairs work

for Mitsubishi Motors.



The agency’s DC office posted a 33% increase in revenues between 1997

and 1998.
