LOS ANGELES, April 2—Ron Hartwig, who took a leave of absence from Hill & Knowlton at the end of last year to work on campaign of Richard Riordan to be the Republican candidate for California governor, has returned to the firm in a new position as executive vice president, chairman of California operations and director of the U.S. corporate practice. 
 
Hartwig will report to MaryLee Sachs, president and chief executive officer of Hill and Knowlton USA, and will have a dotted-line reporting relationship to Harlan Teller, executive vice president and director of the worldwide corporate practice, who had previously been the U.S. corporate practice director as well.
 
Bonnie Goodman, a 20-year veteran of the firm, who had been serving as acting general manager of the Los Angeles office, was named general manager of H&K’s L.A. operations, formally succeeding Hartwig, who held that position since 1994.
 
In the newly created position as chairman of California, Hartwig will oversee the four offices in the state—Los Angeles, Irvine, San Francisco and Sacramento—and will guide plans for regional business growth.
 
“We are thrilled to have Ron Hartwig back in the Hill and Knowlton family,” said Sachs.  “During his 20-year career with Hill and Knowlton, he grew the Los Angeles office into a leader in the industry.”
 
During her 20-year career at Hill and Knowlton, Goodman has provided leadership in a number of senior positions, including national director of business development, senior managing director of the Los Angeles marketing group and director of business development for the Los Angeles, Irvine and Sacramento offices.
