Sac Area PR Firms Hiring Senior People Again

A little over a year ago I started a news site covering marketing news in the Sacramento area. I shuttered NorCalMarketingNews.com while I had a contract with one of my former employers, Edelman. That contract ran out and I am debating re-starting NorCalMarketingNews.com or something similar.

Part of the reason I am looking at getting it going again is that news is being made again. Agencies are hiring! Want some examples?

Ogilvy hired Paul Hefner as SVP of Public Affairs.  Paul’s been a political consultant for the past few years. He’s been a director of comms for a few California Assembly Speakers and a State Controller. Add in a solid journalistic career and a stint as a Capitol Bureau Chief and I would say that Paul is going to be a huge asset to Ogilvy as they try and wrestle comms around California High Speed Rail program they won last year.

Also, Perry Communications has hired Peter DeMarco as an SVP. How’d I find out? Facebook of course.
