WASHINGTON, DC: The aftershocks of the Exxon/Mobil merger continued

to be felt last week as one of the company’s top voices, Robert O’Leary,

departed the company for a post with Bacardi.



O’Leary, formerly Mobil’s general manager of global public affairs, has

become the new VP of public affairs and communications for Bacardi, the

producer of Bacardi Rums. He said the main reason for the switch was his

desire to avoid uprooting his family in the event of a transfer to

Texas.



While at Mobil, O’Leary oversaw the company’s advertorial program, a key

component of the company’s marketing since the 1970s. He worked with a

global public affairs team boasting outposts in Latin America, Asia and

Europe, and handled internal and executive communications for Mobil

during the merger with Exxon.



Prior to his Mobil stint, O’Leary spent seven years as VP of PR and

advertising for Unisys.
