NEWS IN BRIEF

SAN FRANCISCO: Providian Financial, the nation's sixth-largest bank credit card issuer, has signed former NBCi PR manager Diane Castro as corporate communications manager, filling a long-standing vacancy. Castro, who spent about seven months with NBC's SF-based Internet arm, was laid off - along with the entire internal PR team - from NBCi during its well-publicized November downsizing. Prior to NBCi, Castro worked for The Terpin Group as a senior AE and with Rowett & Associates as a PR consultant. In her current position, she reports to VP of corporate communications Alan Elias, who said he hopes to add two more members to his in-house staff by mid-2001.
