According to PRWeek‘s Aarti Shah, Edelman made some executive team changes this week. Bob Angus, “will step down as president at A&R Edelman in May, giving up day-to-day management of the tech firm he cofounded and sold to Edelman in 2006,” Shah reports. He will be replaced Todd Irwin, GM and EVP, who will pick up day to day duties.

Matt McGinnis, Commercial Product Communications at Dell, posted on Twitter in response to the news, “Looks like Bob Angus has lived through his earn-out period after Edelman bought A&R in ’06.”

Edelman Chief of Staff Derek Creevey says the statement is not accurate. “Bob has stepped down from the global tech practice role, but Bob is very much continuing in his role as chairman of A&R and absolutely that is going to continue. He’s not leaving the company,” Creevey told PRNewser.
