Edelman US chief Mark Hass steps down

Edelman US president and CEO Mark Hass is stepping down from his role after five years at the agency. Russell Dubner, president of Edelman New York, will succeed him on 1 July.

Hass, who has held leadership positions in Asia and the US at Edelman, was named US CEO in February 2012.

A source close to the situation told PRWeek that one reason for Hass’ departure was that the former Manning Selvage & Lee CEO is used to being in the top position at a firm with final say on all its decisions.
