gregory papajohnGregory Papajohn, who led GolinHarris' New York corporate practice until February, has moved to sparkpr to head a new financial tech and social change operation in the Big Apple.

Papajohn was previously a senior VP at Emanate, co-directing its Bank of America work, and handled Digicel and Santander Bank among other GH clients.

San Francisco-based sparkpr said Papajohn, as managing director of financial tech and social innovation, is among a spate of hires on both coasts meant to diversify the tech firm's offerings into areas like healthcare, digital ad/marketing, and broadcast relations. 

The 15-year-old firm led by Alan Soucy posted revenue of $11.4M last year with around 50 staffers.
