Susan Lagana, who was managing director for PA & crisis at BCW, has moved to Brunswick Group as a partner in DC.
At the WPP unit, Lagana advised corporate clients on trade, national security, crisis preparedness & response, sustainability, environmental issues, climate policy and technology matters.
Earlier, she was director of PA and deputy assistant secretary for policy at the Dept. of Transportation, director of strategic communications at the US Navy and an attorney at Sidley Austin.
Brunswick chief Neal Wolin noted that Lagana has a “wealth of experience in advising on critical issues in the public and private sector as both a lawyer and PR practitioner.”
She will “add significant value to both US and international clients seeking expert counsel on how to navigate Washington.”
