Moretti has left the agency to serve as GE Capital’s manager of
The post had been vacant since April, when Neal McGarity left to take a
spot as director of corporate communication for global investment bank
Warburg Dillon Read.
Moretti, previously an SVP and head of the financial PR group at CDR,
began her new job late last month. She reports to global VP of corporate
public relations and advertising, Valerie Di Maria, and is responsible
for corporate programs as well as marketing communications and media
relations support for many of the company’s 28 businesses.
’She has in-depth experience in the financial services area and brings
outside-in thinking to the department,’ said Di Maria, who added that
Moretti’s goals include enhancing the understanding of what GE Capital
is and the value it brings to businesses. Moretti will also work
extensively with GE Capital subsidiaries to help promote products and
services to targeted audiences.
While Moretti said that Citigate was supportive of her move, she
admitted that departing the firm was a difficult decision.
’CDR was very much an extension of myself and vice versa,’ she said.
’It’s a great agency going in a great direction, but GE Capital is a
world-class company. I’m delighted to be a part of it.’
GE Capital boasts a corporate PR group of five people, as well as 70
in-house PR staffers sprinkled around the world.
