MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA: Former Intel communications executive Pam Pollace has joined Edelman as the global head of the agency's technology practice.
Pollace, who left Intel in May after 18 years, was VP and director of the corporate communications group at the semiconductor giant. Executive search firm Korn/Ferry International placed Pollace at Edelman.
"I had a terrific role at a great company, and I wanted to explore some different options," said Pollace of her decision to leave Intel.
Pollace will work from Edelman's Silicon Valley office, and will report to vice-chairman Leslie Dach.
Pollace replaces Rich Moore, who left the agency in June 2004 after leading the tech practice for just seven months.
