Alexandra Delanghe has joined MDC Partners as VP-corporate communications. She makes the move from advertising giant DDB, where she held the director of communications position.
Delanghe began her career at WPP’s Robinson Lerer &Montgomery, earning crisis and corporate PR experience from work for Tyco and Nielson Media Research. She did a five-year stint at Powell Communications before shifting to Omnicom’s DDB operation.
MDC CEO Miles Nadal praised Delanghe for her “depth of strategic insight” and understanding of the ad/PR operation’s culture and business model.
Delanghe is based in New York, taking over for Katie Kempner, who is returning to MDC’s CP+B ad unit in the new post of VP/executive director of global communications.
MDC is parent of PR firms Kwittken & Co., Allison & Partners and Sloane & Co.
