BRUSSELS—Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide has hired Natalie Sarkic-Todd as managing director of public relations and public affairs in its Brussels office. Sarkic-Todd has 20 years of government, corporate, trade association and consultancy experience, most recently with public affairs agency EPPA, where she managed pan-European campaigns.
Earlier experience includes positions with British Gas covering government affairs and media relations in the EMEA region; the Confederation of British Industry promoting trade and investment in Europe; and the British diplomatic service in London, Moscow and the United Nations in New York.
