NEW YORK: Financial Dynamics has named Kathleen Tanzy VP of media relations.
She joins the New York office and will advise on media relations campaigns and media training. Tanzy reports to Amy Rosenberg, SVP and director of media relations, who was hired in late 2003.
Tanzy joins the firm from CNBC, where she reported for programs such as Squawk Box. She also previously anchored Reuters Financial Television and served as a deputy bureau chief and White House correspondent for Futures World News wire service and Futures Magazine.
"There are very few people that have her experience across a wide range of subjects," said Declan Kelly, FD president and CEO, emphasizing her experience in both political and business beats. "We have an ever-expanding media team. We'll make sure that what she does for our clients fits neatly with her experience and background."
Kelly added that the firm expects to continue to add media relations professionals in the ensuing months.
FD also hired Paul Patella as an associate in the media relations division, responsible for enhancing corporate visibility and implementing branding campaigns for a wide array of clients, including GMAC Mortgage, ditech.com, Transpro, and Riverdance. John Capodanno was also named VP of investor relations in FD's life sciences practice.
