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.

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.
