NEW YORK: After only seven months as MD at Gavin Anderson (GA),
Diane Perry has signed up to become senior MD and director of the New
York corporate practice at Hill & Knowlton.
"I thought that going back to a smaller agency doing just investor
relations would be what I wanted, but I really missed big agency life,"
said Perry, who, prior to GA, was GM and EVP of Weber Shandwick
Worldwide's New York office and practice director for global corporate
Perry will report to Phil Sheldon, GM of the New York office, with a
dotted line to Harlan Teller, EVP and worldwide director of H&K's
Sheldon said Perry's main responsibility will be to grow the corporate
practice. "It is our flagship practice in our flagship office, and we
cannot allow the economy to be an excuse for not succeeding," Sheldon
Perry replaces Ann Wright, who left H&K in October.
