Katie Levinson Joins Edelman Public Affairs
We learned this morning (scooped by The Playbook yet again!) that the well-known and highly-regarded Katie Levinson has joined Edelman Public Relations as senior vice president and political director in its New York Public Affairs practice. Edelman was recently named an A-List Agency by Advertising Age magazine and Katie's new boss, Richard Edelman, was named Agency Executive of the Year by the same publication. A dream gig in the PR world, Levinson has certainly earned it. Her background includes serving as communications director and spokeswoman for the RNC, Bush-Cheney ’04, President Bush, Governor Schwarzenegger’s reelection and Mayor Giuliani’s presidential campaign. PF can even remember her hills days when she worked for Rep. Chris Shays. Congratulations Katie and good luck!
