Erica Iacono Leaving ‘PRWeek’ for Ketchum

Update: PRNewser had a brief conversation with PRWeek EIC Steve Barrett, who had no further comment besides the one submitted via e-mail by Haymarket MD Lisa Kirk. In addition, he said we’ll “soon see adverts” to fill the position. A quick scan of the Mediabistro job board didn’t turn up any postings as yet.

Exclusive: PRWeek executive editor Erica Iacono is leaving the publication and heading to Ketchum to fill the newly-created position of account supervisor, senior new business specialist. Her final day with the magazine is November 12 and she will join the firm later that month. Iacono has been with PRWeek since 2004.

For Ketchum, Iacono tells PRNewser she will work on new business and handle content creation for clients in the corporate practice.

On Friday, we reported on the departure of Kimberly Maul, PRWeek‘s corporate reporter. In June, PRNewser spoke with Julia Hood, who announced she would be leaving the publication to become president of the Arthur W. Page Society. Hood had served as editor-in-chief of the magazine from 2002 to 2008 and was publishing director of both PRWeek and DMNews when she left.

Steve Barrett joined PRWeek in March as editor-in-chief, a position that was open for nearly a year after the departure of the previous EIC, Keith O’Brien.
