H&K's DC office left without a GM again

WASHINGTON: Hill & Knowlton's Washington office is once again without a general manager following last week's departure of Alisa Fogelman-Beyer.

WASHINGTON: Hill & Knowlton's Washington office is once again without a general manager following last week's departure of Alisa Fogelman-Beyer.

Fogelman-Beyer arrived at H&K after the January 2001 acquisition of her marketing and PR shop The ProMarc Agency. She was named to the GM post in July of last year - the first person to hold the job full-time since Torie Clarke left to become head of public affairs at the Department of Defense in early 2001. Then-CEO Tom Hoog held the position for more than a year in her absence.

Jim Clark, practice leader for H&K's media team, has been appointed interim GM.

"It was a wonderful experience working with H&K. I resigned my position strictly for personal reasons," said Fogelman-Beyer, whose two children are both under four years old.

Many in Washington viewed the former tech practice leader as an unusual choice to lead H&K's DC office because of her relative lack of experience in public affairs. H&K declined to comment on its search for candidates to fill the position.
