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.
