Ketchum chair Drobis to retire

NEW YORK: Ketchum chairman and senior partner David Drobis is to retire at the end of this month.

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.’
