Oliver Russell recently announced that they’ve added Fiona Gwozdz (Gah- vusht) to their team as PR Director to head its public relations practice.
Gwozdz has broad experience working internationally and domestically for nonprofits, public affairs groups, public agencies, and PR consultancies. She most recently worked as a senior account executive at Edelman on its business and social purpose team. She is a graduate of the Clark Honors College, University of Oregon.
Gwozdz will work from her base in the Portland, Oregon, area, according to the agency.
As 2019 came to a close we got word that veteran account manager Josh Mercaldo made the move to Rizen Creative.
Josh has spent the better part of the past two decades in the agency world, first with Mediaphex, which later merged to become Wirestone (now part of Accenture Interactive), then Publicis, followed by a decade-plus with Drake Cooper, and most recently CLM.
He is a graduate of Idaho State University, and lifelong Toronto Blue Jays fan.
