WASHINGTON: Gibraltar Associates named Kelley McCormick a partner and chief operating officer, effective March 1.
McCormick, most recently a partner at Qorvis Communications, reports to Eric Bovim, CEO and co-founder of Gibraltar Associates. Before joining Qorvis in 2002 as a MD, she held positions at Powell Tate and Weber Shandwick, and Ketchum.
McCormick is the fifth partner to leave Qorvis in the last five months. Last week, Don Goldberg, Michael Quint, and Jason Siegel announced that they had opened a new firm called Bluetext. Maura Corbett left Qorvis in November 2010.
