WALTHAM, MA—Larry Weber’s W2 Group has added Rich Blewitt, an expert in global crisis and issues management, as a senior advisor. Blewitt will initially focus on supporting the growth of W2 public relations firm Racepoint Group’s World 2.0 global reputation practice, which works with corporations, countries and NGOs to establish dialogues and communities to promote agendas. 

 

Blewitt founded and led Rowan & Blewitt, an issues and crisis management firm that worked for top management of many of the world's leading corporations, including 30 of the Fortune 100 companies and was ultimately acquired by Weber Shandwick. The firm worked with Exxon after the Valdez oil spill; supported American Airlines following the 9/11 attack; assisted Household Finance with the sub-prime lending controversy; and counseled Ford Motor during the issue with Firestone Tire.

 

Prior to forming Rowan & Blewitt, he was a former corporate officer of Velsicol Chemical Corporation, where he received national attention for leading the business’ turnaround.
