NEW YORK: Randy Williams, formerly an assistant managing editor at Dow Jones Newswires, has joined Starkman & Associates as a managing director.

"[PR]'s something I've always been interested in. It was my minor in college," Williams explained. "A chance to work at a place like Starkman was too good to pass up."

In his new position, 34-year-old Williams will focus on media relations and on writing and recruiting. He will report directly to Eric Starkman, the firm's president and founder.

Williams spent more than a decade at the newswire, including the past five years supervising 40 reporters on the spot- news desk. "I've always had a lot of respect for the folks in PR, having worked with them for the last 10-and-a-half years on the other side of the fence," he said.
