NEW YORK (BUSINESS WIRE) -The Council of Public Relations Firms, one of several PR industry trade associations, today announced that it had rearranged some of their boardroom seating.
The new Chair of the Council’s Board is Marcia Silverman, CEO of Ogilvy Public Relations. Silverman, a lifer at Ogilvy PR, was once recognized by industry booster rag PRWeak as one of the 50 or so Most Powerful Women in PR and as one of the 100 Most Influential PR Professionals of the century. (That and 50 cents.)
Kathy Cripps, president of the Council, said the obligatory thank yous in near perfect monotone: "Thanks to the contributions of the board of directors and its committees, the Council is an important industry resource. Helen Ostrowski provided strong leadership during her year as Council chair. Incoming chair, Marcia Silverman has pledged to continue to push for more outreach to clients about the value of public relations."
