NEW YORK, June 15—Burson-Marsteller has added two industry veterans to its New York public affairs practice: Mike DeLuca, an award-winning journalist who covered the restaurant, hospitality and retail markets for 24 years; and Gregory Miley, former chief of staff for the New York City Economic Development Corp. and a communications official in the Giuliani and Bloomberg administrations.
 
Miley’s appointment comes as Burson-Marsteller is competing with Edelman for the NYCED’s campaign to rebuild lower Manhattan.
 
“Mike and Greg bring a depth of knowledge on a wide range of issues affecting the vitality of New York City, from hospitality and media to public policy and economic development,” said Richard Mintz, B-M’s chairman of U.S. public affairs.  “Together they add several new dimensions in the services we provide our clients.”
 
DeLuca joins the firm as managing director, responsible for providing public affairs counsel to clients in the hospitality industry. He comes to B-M from New York-based Lebhar-Friedman, a business media company that publishes trade magazines and newspapers for the foodservice and retail markets, where he served as director of corporate development.
 
Miley joins as a director. He has held a variety of key positions for the City of New York over the past seven years, including chief of staff at the New York City Economic Development Corporation. Prior to joining EDC, Miley was associate chief of staff to Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani.
