Lee Alman, who was with Edelman for almost 12 years in several risk and reputation management roles, has moved to BCW Global, where he is now an executive vice president in the agency’s North America corporate affairs practice.

Based in Los Angeles, he will be responsible for leading BCW’s issues and crisis specialty across the US.

At Edelman, Alman most recently served as EVP, US crisis and risk practice, managing a range of issues that included cybersecurity, reductions in force, corporate reorganizations, executive misconduct, investor activism, labor relations, federal litigation communications, natural disasters, utility rates and workplace violence. He worked with clients across arts and entertainment, education, energy, financial services, food and beverage, healthcare, retail, and technology / AI, among other sectors.

Before joining Edelman, Alman was director of external affairs for The Doe Fund, which works to help homeless and formerly incarcerated people achieve permanent self-sufficiency. He has also worked as VP, public affairs at the Russ Reid Company.

A bar-admitted attorney, he has more than two decades of corporate communications, public affairs and policy experience spanning corporate, government, and nonprofit sectors.

“Clients need strategic experts like Lee who have guided clients across industries through issues with a clear eye and sound judgment,” said BCW, Americas CEO Kristine Boyden. “I have had the privilege of working with Lee and I know that he’s also the rare crisis practitioner who is as good at navigating issues with clients as he is at building and leading teams.”

“I am delighted to join BCW—soon to be Burson—and to further strengthen its well-earned legacy,” said Alman.
