Lots of great rumors floating around this weekend about personnel changes in the measurement world. Word has it that Jill Ury -- whom I hired as an intern at Delahaye in 1989 and who had to be the longest surviving Delahaye (now Cision) employee will be joining Report International to help boost its US presence. Jill has been working in the world of measurement for almost as long as I have, so she should bring alot of background to RI's fledgling US operation.
And Lisa Binzell, another of my all time favorite Delahaysians, will be joining her friend Barbara Coons -- another of my favorite people, at Edelman's Strategy One.
Then I heard from the legendary Measurement Maven from Down Under, Jim McNamara, that as of August, he will be taking up the post of Professor of Public Communications at the University of Technology, Sydney, a newly created Chair in the Faculties of Humanities and Social Sciences to lead research and degree programs in public relations and advertising and also head the Australian Centre for Public Communication. Sounds like a perfect fit. McNamamar is one of our most popular contributors The Measurement Standard (as well as a great camel rider.)
And several future bloggers and Painiacs have also entered the world. Kami Watson Huyse gave birth to future baby blogher Chloe, and Jessica Paradis brought the latest addition to KDPaine & Partners, Dyson Ramsey, into the world just a week earlier. That brings to six the number of babies born this past week or so. So, inquiring minds want to know, what the heck was going on in the universe last November?
