Glover Park Group handled media for former Nissan, Renault chief Carlos Ghosn, who fled Japan on Dec. 29, where he was out on bail on financial misconduct charges that could have put him in the slammer for 15 years.

The Ghosn family had been using GPG for media strategy, prior to Ghosn's great escape to Lebanon via Turkey.

Katie Myler, New York-based managing director in the strategic communications unit, heads a "small team" working for Ghosn in conjunction with colleagues in Europe, according to a staffer at the firm.

She joined GPG from Burson-Marsteller, where she handled Ford Motor, Nestle Water and Accenture.

Myler has government experience gained through stints as special advisor to the UK's Home Secretary dealing with counter-terror, immigration and MI5 matters and for the Secretary of Health.

Stagwell Group's SKDKnickerbocker and Haley Barbour's BGR Government Affairs also did work for Ghosn during the past year.
