Neiman snaps up Reeves for top job

HARRISBURG, PA: Governor Tom Ridge's longtime press secretary Tim

Reeves will enter private life next month as president of

Harrisburg-based Neiman Communications. The move comes on the heels of

Ridge's own departure from the governor's office to head up the newly

created federal Office of Homeland Security.

Reeves' replacement, deputy communications director Steve Aaron, said

the two moves were not related.

Aaron, a former anchor and reporter with NBC affiliate WGAL-TV, also

said the White House is still deciding whether to hire communications

staff for the Office of Homeland Security, which will be in charge of

coordinating efforts between several federal agencies. "They are still

in the process of determining how many staff members will be in that

office," Aaron said.

"One possibility is to let Ari Fleischer be press secretary for that

office, too."

Neiman Communications is the PR division of the Neiman Group, a $32 million integrated communications agency. Reeves replaces Tom May,

who will continue as group EVP.
