SAN FRANCISCO, June 26--Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide has named Stephen Jones client service leader on its Sun Microsystems account and managing director and co-head of its global technology practice.  He was previously at Ketchum, where he served as associate director in the global technology practice.

 

Jones, who will report to Ogilvy chairman and CEO Bob Seltzer, will be based in San Francisco and will return to managing an account he previously led while he was at Burson-Marsteller. There, he was responsible for Sun's corporate, workstation, server, networking and Internet campaigns.

 

Says Seltzer, "Stephen brings a multi-faceted career exclusively in the technology environment where he has amassed a portfolio of high-level media and industry relationships and strategic experience found in very few practitioners today. Because of that depth of experience, it is no surprise that he has previously managed Sun's business."

 

Prior to joining Ketchum, Jones held senior management positions with a number of top global and Silicon Valley public relations agencies, including Burson-Marsteller, Shandwick/Hi-Tech, Hill and Knowlton and Wilson McHenry. 

 

Jones said he was attracted to the new position by the opportunity to manage "one of the premier global technology brands," and by the quality of the Alexander Ogilvy name.  Says Jones,  "Alexander Ogilvy is one of the strongest brands in technology public relations, known for a combination of high-level strategic counsel and aggressive hands-on execution. 

 
"There remains a good deal of upside for growth of the Alexander Ogilvy tech practice in size and scope in both North America and global markets. I'm excited to have a hand in driving that next wave of development."
