Burson-Marsteller announced the addition of two senior directors: David J. Roznowski, APR and Chris Short. Roznowski and Short, who together bring more than 45 years of communications experience to the company, will be based out of Burson-Marsteller’s Chicago office. Roznowski joins Burson-Marsteller as a senior director after a decade in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries, most recently with BP North America in a corporate, internal and crisis communications role for BP’s largest refinery in Whiting, Ind., as it completed a multi-year, multi-billion upgrade.
