Brett Pulley, who was let go by Weber Shandwick in February as part of a cost-cutting move, has returned to Bloomberg as bureau chief in Atlanta.

He was among five senior executives dropped by the Interpublic unit earlier this year in what it called "a small staff reduction."

Pulley joined Weber in January 2016 as executive VP in charge of corporate content and media strategy after a four-year run as dean of the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications at Hampton University (VA).

Earlier, he spent more than 20 years as business & financial journalist at Bloomberg, senior editor at Forbes, national correspondent at the New York Times, staff reporter at the Wall Street Journal and reporter at the Orlando Sentinel.
