Last night, Fleishman-Hillard welcomed former New York Times Company CEO Janet Robinson to its International Advisory Board with a cocktail party at Andaz, a hotel across from the New York Public Library. Besides a few quick speeches from CEO Dave Senay, Americas president Jack Modzelewski (surprisingly easy to pronounce!), and Robinson herself, the evening was mostly taken up with mingling and noshing.
A quick mention about this event space: It’s a couple of open rooms with cooks working at stoves placed right in the middle of one of them. Because of the layout (a wine bar was in one room and cocktails were in the other) people moved about freely to check out the happenings in the different corners. Mediabistro’s event coordinator came with and gave it the thumbs up.
