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,
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.
