Public relations firm Allison+Partners announced Tuesday changes in its senior management team to support the agency’s growth in certain markets, including San Diego.
Richard Kendall, the former general manger of the firm's San Diego office, has been shifted north to accelerate agency growth in the Pacific Northwest, Allison+Partners said in a release. Brian Brokowski is the new face, joining Allison+Partners from a post in charge of global communications at SG Biofuels and replacing Kendall as general manager in San Diego. Brokowski will oversee what the company hopes to be continued expansion of the San Diego office, with what Allison+Partners said will be an emphasis on the technology, health care, travel and tourism, education, and biotechnology and life science markets. Previously he had served as senior vice president for new business and client services at Fleishman Hillard, where the list of clients included AT&T, the San Diego Padres and Taco Bell.
Allison+Partners also announced the promotions of Cathy Planchard and Matthew Della, the Phoenix general manager and global head of corporate practice, respectively, to senior partners. Newly named partners were announced as well, including Zach Colvin, general manager of the San Francisco office and Kent Schwartz, senior vice president of finance.
