NEW YORK: Former Forbes PR chief Elizabeth Ames has set up her own

firm, iMedia Communications, and taken her old employer with her as a

client.



Ames, who spent almost seven years with the financial giant, is widely

credited with growing the Forbes PR operation into a powerful unit.

During her tenure there, Ames set up press conferences in Asia and wrote

radio segments for CBS radio’s ’Forbes Report.’ She also created a

corporate PR position that had not previously existed.



To replace Ames, Forbes has hired former Madison Square Garden PR chief

Monie Begley Feurey.



Feurey, who was installed in the newly created position of VP for

corporate communications, will develop internal and external

communication strategies. She will also oversee a range of publications

and the company’s web site.



Feurey, who boasts 25 years of PR experience, will report directly to

COO Tim Forbes - a sign that PR is a top priority at the company. ’She

will serve as the architect and executor of our communications and will

be a key advisor to senior executives,’ Forbes said.
