NEW YORK: The new MD of Burson-Marsteller's US financial and IR group is looking to expand senior- and mid-level staff in the nationwide group of 55-60 people.

Theodore Lowen has been promoted from MD of the corporate/financial practice.

He has brought in three new people in the last month and said he was especially looking to increase staff in New York, Chicago, LA and San Francisco.

He cites business growth as the main reason to increase staff. 'A lot of companies are putting out earnings warnings and considering restructurings,' said Lowen. 'It takes an understanding not only of balance sheets but also of the financial media.'

Lowen's predecessor, Steve Maslow, left the company in December for a smaller, technology-focused company.

Reporting to Chet Burchett, president of Burson US, and to head of the corporate practice Per Heggenes, Lowen will be responsible for directing analyst and shareholder communications, as well as communications pertaining to ongoing investor and financial media relations, corporate governance, public offerings, restructurings, financial crises, and SEC investigations.
