PARSIPPANY, NJ: Coyne PR has hired Mike Sloan as CFO, leading the firm’s finance and accounting operations from its headquarters in Parsippany, New Jersey.
Sloan started work in the role on May 1, reporting to CEO Tom Coyne and overseeing a team of five. He has succeeded Mark Martin, who left the position on May 15 to join 5W Public Relations as COO.
Sloan’s main responsibilities include establishing the firm’s financial policies and procedures and directing financial strategy. He is also responsible for budgeting, auditing, treasury, and real estate.
Sloan joined Coyne from Taylor, where he was VP of finance. Previously, he was CFO for US operations at Edelman, chief client financial officer at Ogilvy Public Relations, VP of finance at Ketchum, and finance manager at Cohn & Wolfe.
"I joined Coyne because they have a great reputation as a place employees and clients to want to work for and work with; that was important to me at this time in my career," said Sloan.
Earlier this month, Coyne promoted VP Chris Brienza to SVP and head of the agency’s New York office.
The agency reported flat year-over-year revenue in 2013 to more than $20 million. Coyne said it hired 41 staffers and opened an office in Santa Monica, California, during the year.
