NEW GLOBAL LEADER AT KETCHUM

Ketchum has named Christopher Atkins director of its global corporate practice, following Ketchum Partner Bob Amen's decision to move from that spot to a reduced schedule as a senior management counselor. Atkins, who will report to Rob Flaherty, senior partner/global practices, will lead the growth and development of Ketchum's global corporate practice while continuing to oversee the firm's New York corporate practice.
