Hailed by his peers as a PR trailblazer, Eric Edge, just 32 at the time, was named global chief communications officer for Euro RSCG Worldwide after spending only two years as Euro RSCG director of communications in Chicago. Edge is committed to promoting the agency's belief that social responsibility is at the core of business success. Earlier this year, he led the communications effort for the first One Young World summit. He was also a key member of the team that ran the hugely successful TckTckTck campaign – Kofi Annan's global campaign for climate justice. Out-side of work, Edge is a committed volunteer and works with children and animal organizations.
