NEW YORK: Christina Pantin, former communications leader at Samsung Telecommunications America, has joined Abernathy MacGregor as an SVP.
Pantin worked for more than a year at the electronics giant, leading the company’s consumer mobile and enterprise PR teams before exiting late last year, according to her LinkedIn profile.
Pantin is reporting to Chuck Burgess, president of Abernathy MacGregor. She is not replacing anyone in the role.
Prior to working at Samsung, Pantin was a director at Brunswick Group, where she was a member of the agency’s global crisis advisory and global marketing groups. She was also a training coordinator at Brunswick’s Hong Kong office and was a writer and editor for its publication, Brunswick Review.
Pantin spent the bulk of her career at Thomson Reuters, where she was a reporter, editor, and GM across locations in the U.S. and Southeast Asia-Pacific.
Abernathy MacGregor changed leadership at the beginning of the year when Tom Johnson succeeded James Abernathy as CEO. Abernathy had been the firm’s sole CEO since 1984, when he founded the firm with James MacGregor.
