Reporting a slowing of growth in 2016, Richard Edelman described last year as a period of transition for the world's biggest PR agency. Early signs suggest this will continue in 2017, not least given mayor personnel changes.
David Brain, a key figure behind Edelman's global rise, announced last night he will leave the firm in May. Closer to home, recent weeks have seen the arrival of a new EMEA boss Carol Potter, new UK public affairs chief Will Walden and, in a newly created role demonstrating Edelman's creative ambitions, Ryan Reddick from creative agency The Moment as content director. The evolution of a PR powerhouse continues.
