A new era

19 April 2007

Watch out, Hill & Knowlton has a new global head of digital.

Julie Atherton, previously head of our online communications team in the US, has been appointed to take over the role from Tony Burgess-Webb who founded the practice back in 1995. Tony is now H&K’s chief marketing officer, so as the agency’s marketing technologist I still get to spend (too much?) time working with him.

I’ve also had the pleasure of spending some time with Julie on my infrequent visits to the US, and am sure she will do a great job.

I know she’s been looking for an excuse to set up a blog here on Collective Conversation, so what better time… ;-)

    You heard it here first, readers! Julie, you can have a reprieve until Monday when we will have upgraded to the new look version of Collective Conversation – then I’ll expect to see your application in my inbox!!

    I think it would be fitting for Julie to be the first new blogger as we launch the new version of Collective Conversation.  Niall just has to accept your application!

    We’re all pretty stoked about this. Bring it on Julie!

    I still can’t believe I finally get down to Oz and one of the most famous Aussies now is in NYC heading up the team!  Good on ya Julie!
