ATLANTA: Recruitment agency Randstad U.S.A. has hired Alicia Thompson as VP of communications.
She declined to comment further.
Since last April, Thompson has been running a consultancy called Signature Leadership, focused on coaching and mentoring.
She joined Edible Arrangements in March 2018 as VP of communications. After she left the company, comms was led by Karlie Lahm, senior director of communications, who herself left the company late last year to join Chick-fil-A as senior principal team leader for corporate communications.
Thompson was also head of Porter Novelli’s Atlanta, and GM of Edelman’s Atlanta footprint and regional leader of the firm’s food sector and VP of communications at Popeyes.
Thompson was honored as a member of PRWeek’s Hall of Femme in 2018.
