INTERNATIONAL: WSJ finance chief joins Brunswick as senior partner

NEW YORK: Leading London-based financial PR firm Brunswick has made

its second high-profile hire in as many months.

As reported on PRWeek Worldwire last week, the agency has appointed the

former Wall Street Journal finance editor Steven Lipin to its New York


Lipin's move comes just weeks after the firm secured the services of

James Rubin, the former assistant secretary of state for public affairs

in Bill Clinton's administration.

Rubin, who is now a partner in Brunswick's UK HQ, has been based in

London since 1999, when he married CNN's special foreign correspondent,

Christiane Amanpour.

Lipin starts next week in the agency's 20-strong New York office, taking

the title of senior partner, financial PR and IR.

He joined the WSJ's New York office as a reporter in 1991. In 1995, he

began covering M&As. He took over as finance editor in October 2000.
