Edelman's Carlos Correcha-Price is joining Madrid's Llorente & Cuenca as CEO of its US operations in Miami.
The 15-year Edelman veteran will assume duties once held by Mike Fernandez, who departed for the CCO post at Enbridge energy pipeline operator.
Correcha-Price was Edelman's GM in Miami & Bogotá, director of PA for Latin America and senior VP for international PA in Washington.
Alejandro Romero, CEO of LLYC Americas, expects Correcha-Price will strengthen the firm's positioning among US companies with investments in South America.
LLYC posted a 12.4 percent gain in 2019 revenues to $47M, paced by 21 percent growth in both Spain and Brazil, its biggest markets.
