First on PRNewser: Edelman hired former Brunswick Group partner Nina Devlin as SVP according to an anonymous source, then confirmed by people at the agency.
Devlin, known as the Golden Goose by a small group of her husband’s friends who enjoyed millions in gains based on information obtained by him about pending mergers Brunswick was handling. This happened apparently without her knowledge and Matthew Devlin pleaded guilty to four counts of conspiracy to commit securities fraud and one count of securities fraud.
Justin Blake, managing director, of Edelman’s New York Corporate & Public Affairs practice confirmed the hire: “We are delighted that Nina Devlin, an experienced client counselor with deep knowledge of the financial industry, has decided to join the team.”
We don’t know if Devlin found other employment between Edelman and losing her job at Brunswick
