AUSTIN, TX: Ketchum and Corporate Technology Communications (CTC)
have merged their Austin offices, with the combined headcount dwindling
to six PR staffers. The move follows Ketchum's June purchase of
Chicago-based CTC. CTC's former Austin MD, Dan Arenz, completed a
two-year commitment to the agency and moved back to Chicago to look for
work. Account director Kimberly Schram will oversee day-to-day
operations at least through the end of this year, while SVP Teresa
Henderson supervises all Texas operations from Dallas.
