HAMBURG: Martina Heuer, Edelman PR Deutschland MD, is to leave at the end of the year to go freelance. Five years ago, Edelman acquired the agency Heuer & Partner and formed Edelman's Hamburg branch. She will continue to provide strategic advice to Edelman. 'We may well have lost Martina Heuer as captain, but not as pilot,' says Edelman Deutschland CEO Eduard Weber-Bemnet. Cornelia Kunze, who has been a member of the management team for a year, will take over from Heuer in January.
