November 18, 2011 by angelsmith
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — PR Talent has announced the opening of a London office to handle executive search for full-time and freelance public relations positions. London is the first international office for the world’s largest PR specialist recruiting firm. Diane Alexis, PR Talent’s VP of International and Eastern Region U.S. Recruiting, will lead the office. Fluent in French, and a native English speaker, she recently moved to Europe after leading many of the firm’s NY searches.
“Ms. Alexis is extremely talented and will help us quickly build our presence in this very vibrant and exciting PR market,” said PR Talent President Jim Delulio. “With offices in New York, LA, San Francisco, Chicago and now London, we are uniquely positioned to tap talent on both sides of the Atlantic, giving clients fast access to the very deepest talent pool of public relations professionals.”
Prior to joining PR Talent, Ms. Alexis led recruitment efforts for Fortune 500 companies and executive search firms in the U.S. and Europe, including Lifetime Networks, MTV Networks, Pfizer, Mediaedge:cia, L’Oréal and others.
“I’m passionate about helping clients win the war for talent… finding the next rock star is my obsession,” said Ms. Alexis. “And there aren’t many bigger stages for that talent in Europe than London, which clearly offers an amazing variety of in-house and agency opportunities.”
PR Talent’s laser focus on public relations also means that it has established deep pools of talent across almost every industry and communications specialty like social media, crisis communications, CSR, and media relations. According to Mr. Delulio, the demand for PR talent continues to grow as corporations require more support to manage ever-evolving social media and digital tools – as well as the reputation management issues that result from their use.
“Smart companies know that talent wins. They pick their PR agencies based on talent and they staff their communications departments with the best and brightest,” noted Mr. Delulio. “Our firm’s goal is simple — make it easier for corporations and agencies to identify this winning talent around the world.”
PR Talent offers both full-time and freelance public relations talent across all areas of expertise and industries. The firm, headquartered in Huntington Beach, Calif., was founded by Mr. Delulio in 1998 after 17 years as a PR professional.
