Novelli takes top position at AARP

WASHINGTON: PR had a seat at the table for the last 17 months under

Bill Novelli at the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP).

But now he has been promoted from associate executive director for

public affairs to executive director and CEO of the 35 million member

organization, it has moved to the head of the table.

Novelli's public affairs portfolio includes communications, advocacy,

publications, partnerships and international work. Following his

ascension from PA chief to CEO, he is now considering if there is a way

he "might want to reorganize" before deciding on how and if his former

post is filled.

Novelli was a co-founder and former president of Porter Novelli, now the

world's seventh largest PR agency. He later did stints at CARE and the

Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids before arriving at AARP.
