Kathy Jeavons has joined Burson-Marsteller’s Direct Impact grassroots communications unit as executive VP.
The veteran communicator worked in George Bush I’s White House as associate director for public liaison and at the Dept. of Energy as PA specialist in its congressional affairs office.
Most recently, Jeavons was senior VP at Story Partners, handling healthcare, energy, food and nutrition clients. She also did stints at Ketchum, Public Strategies Inc. and Dix & Eaton.
Michael Fleischer, DI president, called Jeavons a “demonstrated leader in developing and leading multifaceted national and international PA, issue advocacy and reputation campaigns.”
