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.
