Edelman Appoints New Head of Chicago Office

2756a9891d9fecb8e56ba61b7893dfa8In yet another revolving door announcement, Edelman named Jay Porter as the new president of its inaugural Chicago office.

Porter was most recently executive vice president and global client relationship manager for Starbucks; he’ll replace Rick Murray, who’s moving on to other endeavors, and report to U.S. president/CEO Mark Haas.

This won’t be Porter’s first stint with the firm: from 2005-2012 he alternately served as the Seattle Consumer practice, manager of the Axe account and EVP/general manager of the San Francisco office before taking over the Starbucks account.

Edelman’s made a few changes since announcing its 2014 “Show Up Differently” initiative; we’ll report on future updates.
