MCLEAN, VA—BearingPoint, the business consulting and systems integration firm created by the spin off in January 2000 of KPMG’s consulting business, has named former AT&T public relations chief Connie Weaver executive vice president and chief marketing officer. Weaver will have global responsibility for the company’s marketing, branding, investor relations and communications. She will report to Harry You, chief executive officer.
“Since I joined BearingPoint in March, a critical component of our turnaround has been my unwavering focus on building a world-class management team,” said You. “Connie’s unique background, coupled with hr top-notch skills in marketing, communications and investor relations, makes her the perfect fit for us as we take the business forward.”
Weaver was most recently executive vice president for public relations, marketing and brand at AT&T, where she was a member of the executive leadership reporting to CEO David Dorman and was responsible for the global branding of the corporation around the “world’s networking company” theme, for which she was recognized as 2004 Communicator of the Year by the Business Marketing Association.
Earlier, as AT&T’s vice president of investor relations, she was recognized by Investor Relations Magazine with its award for the Most Improved Investor Relations Program.
Before joining AT&T in 1996, Weaver held senior positions with responsibility for investor relations and financial communications for Microsoft Corp. and MCI, and spent 10 years at McGraw Hill in a number of management positions in product management, marketing and corporate planning.
