Burson-Marsteller Hires More Staffers from San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom’s PR Team

The latest departure is Erin Garvey, Newsom’s deputy press secretary, who just joined Burson’s San Francisco office as manager in the issues and crisis group.

She reunites with Newsom’s former communication’s director, Nathan Ballard, who joined Burson this past March. Brian Purchia left his post as Newsom’s deputy communications director and tech advisor to join Burson in April.
