NEW YORK: BerlinRosen has expanded its leadership team by promoting 10 staffers to newly created positions.
The firm has upped four employees to EVP positions and six to SVP positions. The EVP roles are newly created as part of a new management structure. Jonathan Rosen, co-founder of BerlinRosen, said the firm has seen "tremendous" growth over the past five years and the management structure needed to change as well.
"We promoted people who already are playing leadership roles," said Jonathan Rosen, co-founder of BerlinRosen. "The best way to grow in an organization is to recognize the leadership people have already taken on and this is a way of formalizing that."
The four employees promoted to EVP include: Stephanie Mueller, head of the D.C. office and head of the national issue advocacy practice; Jeremy Soffin, leader of the real estate, transportation, and infrastructure practice; Ben Wyskida, leader of the philanthropy, media, and culture practice; and Lynsey Kryzwick, leader of the labor practice.
The six promoted to SVP are Josh Cook, Keri Fulton, Moira Herbst, Jaclyn Kessel, Dan Levitan, and Danny Massey.
BerlinRosen is a public affairs firm with offices in New York, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles. The firm has roughly 100 staffers.
The firm was subpoenaed in April to be part of a federal and state investigation into fundraising for New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.
"We’re proud of the work we do for our clients," said Rosen, regarding the subpoena. "We have acted appropriately and in accordance with the law at all times."
BerlinRosen was also one of five New York agencies that filed a lawsuit against New York State in March when it proposed redefining PR as lobbying.
