Edelman VP Tanya Peebles, who was a top figure in the firm’s consumer

marketing practice, has jumped to Fleishman-Hillard as VP of marketing

communications.



In her new position, Peebles will oversee several national accounts,

including Nestle brands Nescafe and Carnation. Her hiring fills the

vacancy created by the departure of Jan Taylor Bauer, now a marketing

practice SVP at GCI. At GCI, Bauer will work on accounts for British

Airways, United Distillers and Vintners and SkyMall.



During her eight-year Edelman tenure, Peebles worked with a variety of

consumer clients, including Bumble Bee Seafood and Fetzer Vineyards. She

said the move to Fleishman, LA’s second-largest PR firm according to the

1999 PRWeek rankings, was spurred by opportunity ’to apply my skills to

some of the world’s largest brands.’



According to Peebles, her replacement has not been named, though the

firm has ’beefed up junior staff in the group.’ Claudia Bloom will

continue to lead the consumer marketing group as SVP.



FH has also added financial communications veteran Sheree Aronson as

SVP, a new post in LA.



In addition to Bauer, GCI has added former Bohle Company senior group

manager Joseph Riser as VP overseeing the corporate and technology

practice.



On the corporate side, he replaces Ariel Carpenter.
