Having joined the global PR agency as an account executive, Drobis rose through the ranks during a 36-year stint to become CEO, a post he left in 2000. He will retain the title of chairman emeritus in retirement and remain a consultant for the agency.
Drobis was instrumental in the agency’s growth from a single office in Pittsburgh to one of the world’s biggest networks. He said: ‘I think it’s a much better business today than when I went into it. The potential for people in this profession is enormous.’
