Laura Anderson, who rose to VP/GM of global communications and events in a nearly 20 year stint at Intel, will take on the Americas technology chair at Burson following the completion of the BCW and H+K merger on July 1. She will join BCW on April 22.

At Intel, Anderson was responsible for strategy, content, analyst relations and positioning the company beyond its PC orientation.
