Chime loses star to B-M

Burson-Marsteller has lured away one of Chime's top PROs to head its corporate, issues and technology (CIT) practice.

Harvard PR MD Chris Cartwright will move to the global agency to lead a team of 35 on high-profile clients including Bacardi, De Beers and HSBC. He will report to UK CEO Jonathan Jordan.

Burson-Marsteller formed its CIT practice last year, integrating a handful of departments, including crisis management and internal comms.

Before moving to Harvard two years ago, Cartwright was a director at Brands2Life. Prior to that, he spent seven years at Bite, latterly as its corporate practice head.
