NEW YORK: RR Donnelley Financial has upped its PR critical mass by

adding Mitchell Karig to oversee communications for its capital markets

business.



The financial printing, data and content supplier named Karig external

communications manager. He will report to director of communications

Judy Poole, and be responsible for establishing and managing the unit’s

PR presence.



Karig’s hire is significant in that it represents the first

management-level hire for the firm since it appointed the former NYSE

managing director of communications Poole to oversee the launch of its

communications department last February. The company established the

department to strengthen its worldwide brand awareness and differentiate

itself from similar providers of financial information.



Donnelley’s capital markets division prepares documentation for IPOs,

mergers and acquisitions and other financial transactions. It is one of

three business units within the company; other divisions include

investor and healthcare communications.



Poole said industry trends, such as changes in securities regulations,

have created a greater need for communication between the company and

its clients. ’The industry is constantly in flux,’ she said. ’It became

very apparent that we weren’t paying enough attention to communicating

with our various audiences.’ To this end, the company is looking to

strengthen its investor communications business by hiring an another PR

pro.



Prior to his arrival at Donnelley, Karig served as assistant VP of

corporate communications at MBIA Insurance. From 1992 to 1995, he was

assistant VP of investor relations and corporate communications at

Enhance Financial Services Group.
