ATLANTA: Ketchum has rearranged management at its Atlanta office in response to market changes that increase the importance of Texas and Mexico.

The moves give the office direct oversight of agency operations and business development in the Southwest.

Ketchum senior partner and CEO Ray Kotcher has promoted Jane Shivers, a native Texan, from director to managing director, and Doug Breuer from associate director to director. The promotions formalize operational changes which had given Shivers oversight of the Texas offices last year.

'Atlanta, Dallas and Austin are leading the nation in terms of job growth, corporate relocations and population growth. And all indications are that these trends will continue,' said Kotcher.

'Texas is a very big market for us in all areas, it just needs more attention and nurturing,' he continued. 'We will be looking for acquisitions and strategic alliances.'

Shivers played a leading role in Ketchum's becoming the largest PR agency in the South after it bought her Atlanta firm, Shivers Communications, in 1985. She engineered the acquisition of technology marketing powerhouse Crescent Communications, making the Atlanta office the center of Ketchum's global technology practice.
