Hoping to accommodate increased transaction business and new referrals

from Incepta-owned companies, the firm has added eight senior-level

pros.



Joining Citigate Sard as VPs are Denise Des Chenes, formerly senior

managing director of Hill & Knowlton’s corporate practice; Amy Rosen,

who arrives from Edelman; James Barron, previously director of corporate

relations for British Telecom in North America; Matthew Benson, a senior

director at DC-based public affairs firm Bivings Woodell; and Hugh

Burns, formerly a lawyer with Sullivan & Cromwell. The three new senior

associates are Daniel Gagnier, Keil Decker and Susan Burns.



’We’re continuing to staff up in order to support the considerable

growth we’ve experienced,’ said Citigate Sard chairman and CEO George

Sard.



Sard added that the agency has been working closely with other Incepta

companies. The firm now employs 40 people and expects to exceed its 1999

revenues of $14 million this year.



Citigate Sard is currently working on two high-profile M&As: Deutsche

Telekom’s purchase of Voicestream and Terra Networks’ tentative

agreement to buy Web portal Lycos.
