NEW YORK: Burson-Marsteller shuffled its US corporate practice, promoting Jason Schechter to chair of the US corporate practice and naming Andy Goldberg the CEO of sister agency AGG International.
Goldberg, most recently the chair of the US corporate practice, will lead AGG International, which Burson plans to relaunch in New York in May. AGG had been "relatively inactive" since 2008, according to an agency spokesperson.
AGG, which Goldberg founded and led before joining Burson's corporate practice in 2008, will work with corporate, technology, aerospace, clean-tech, and consumer clients. Goldberg will also maintain a leadership role with key Burson clients like Thomson Reuters.
In his new role, effective April 20, Schechter reports to Patrick Ford, US president and CEO, and Josh Gottheimer, worldwide EVP.
