up Edelman’s New York office, Tom Buckmaster has hitched up his wagons

again.



Buckmaster, who presided over Edelman’s 400-person NY operation for only

seven months (PRWeek, May 3, 1999), next month will join Morristown,

NJ-based manufacturing giant Honeywell as VP of communications.



The move represents Buckmaster’s first corporate gig, after 18 years on

the agency side. ’The opportunity to move into the corporate realm was

long sought,’ he said. The Honeywell position had been vacant for six

months.



Pam Talbot, president, Edelman US, will assume Buckmaster’s day-to-day

responsibilities. ’We’re sorry he’s going, but the New York office is on

course for dollars 50 million this year,’ said president/CEO Richard

Edelman, who considered 50 people when he last tried to fill the NY job.
