Thomas Furlong to Sitrick

Sitrick and Company, the PR powerhouse, snags another LA Timesman–Thomas Furlong, who until last week had been the supervising editor for the paper’s national political coverage. He covered the collapse of the savings and loans in the 80s, and did profiles and investigative pieces on California business leaders including Orange County real estate tycoon Donald Bren, Los Angeles hotelier Severyn Ashkenazy and homebuilder Kaufman & Broad. So, now, he can hold their hands through indictments, lawsuits, etc.

He joins Glenn F. Bunting, former senior deputy business editor and award-winning investigative reporter, and James Bates, former deputy entertainment editor for business and award-winning business writer.
