NEW YORK, Jan. 5, 2012 /CNW/ - MDC Partners announced today that it has enlisted Alexandra Delanghe as VP of Corporate Communications for the MDC Partners Network. In this role, Delanghe will lead and oversee all communications efforts for the organization and serve as a key resource for its partner agencies.
Delanghe joins MDC from advertising network DDB, where she served as U.S. Director of Communications, managing national communications efforts on behalf of the network and its agencies. MDC is adding Delanghe to a corporate team that in the last six months has welcomed top industry leaders including David Dabill, Chief Operating Officer, Brett Colbert, Chief Procurement Officer, and Anne Bologna, Managing Director. As the latest addition to the team, Delanghe brings deep knowledge of, and experience with, top creative agencies as well as a unique corporate and crisis communications background.
"We are thrilled to add Alex to the MDC family of thought leaders," said MDC Founder, Chairman and CEO, Miles Nadal. "She brings a depth of strategic insight and experience to our organization, and she understands our culture and business model. Alex is uniquely positioned to create tremendous value for our partner firms, and her arrival only further establishes MDC as 'The Place Where Great Talent Lives'."
As a communications strategist, Delanghe brings a diversified background to MDC, beginning her career in crisis communications with firm Robinson Lerer & Montgomery, where she worked with clients such as Tyco and Nielson Media Research, offering crisis and corporate communications counsel. Prior to joining DDB, Delanghe spent five years at Powell Communications serving advertising agencies of all types, overseeing strategy development, communications plan development and press relations.
Delanghe will be based out of MDC's corporate office in New York, taking on the role vacated by Katie Kempner, who has rejoined CP+B in the newly created role of VP, Executive Director, Global Communications. Kempner will also be launching a women-focused business show this year.
