NEW YORK—Rich Moore, a co-founding partner of Copithorne & Bellows, is joining Edelman as president of the firm’s global technology practice. Moore will be based in the firm’s Silicon Valley office and report to Pam Talbot, president and chief operating officer for Edelman’s United States operations.
Moore assumes responsibility for the growth and development of the firm’s third largest global practice. The tech practice accounts for approximately 12 percent of the firm’s global revenue and has specialists in nearly every Edelman office.
His appointment comes in the wake of several new assignments and clients, including AT&T Wireless, Infocus, Manugistics, Microsoft, PriceGrabber, Samsung, Synopsys, TSMC and Veritas Software Corporation.
“Rich’s proven leadership capabilities, his breadth of experience with leading technology companies at all stages of growth, and his commitment to clients as well as his colleagues will make him an exciting leader of our technology team,” said Pam Talbot. “He’s the right person to continue the development of this important practice.”
Most recently, Moore was a venture partner with Battery Ventures, advising the firm’s portfolio companies on critical marketing and communications strategies. Prior to joining Battery Ventures in 2000, he was one of the four co-founding partners of Copithorne & Bellows, now part of Porter Novelli. Before Copithorne & Bellows, Moore was a vice president and general manager of Miller Communications (now part of WeberShandwick).
