Weber Shandwick has hired Simon Rothwell as a director in its UK technology practice.
Rothwell will join the agency in mid-March after 13 years at The Good Relations Group and its digital and technology arm Harvard Public Relations. The hire follows the departure of Weber technology director Tali Kramer for College Hill last month.
Rothwell was most recently associate director, leading a team working on technology clients across Harvard and Good Relations. His client experience includes RIM, Adobe, Nokia, nVidia, and Cisco.
“[Rothwell's] wealth of b-to-b and b-to-c technology communications experience, creative brain, and digital track record will significantly benefit our clients and our staff,” said Peter Ross, MD of the UK technology practice at Weber Shandwick.
