Former Golin execjoins Edelman for new 'experience'

CHICAGO: Rick Murray, former head of Golin/Harris' now-defunct

CrossMedia unit, has moved to rival Edelman, where he's starting a new

practice called "brand experiences."

As an EVP and director of the practice, Murray will bring together

meeting production, event creation, and exhibit work that Edelman has

done in the past from a variety of offices and practices. Murray will

report to Nancy Ruscheinski, president of Edelman Chicago.

"We'll expand through Chicago and the consumer operations," working with

existing and new clients to create events, Murray said.

For the time being, Murray is the only employee in the new

brand-experiences area, and so will draft help from throughout the

agency as needed. As business develops, he expects to hire new


Murray lost his spot at CrossMedia in May, and the unit ceased

operations in August.
