WASHINGTON, D.C., October 1—Nancy Glick, a 20-year veteran of Hill & Knowlton, is joining the Washington office of Ruder-Finn as executive vice president in the healthcare practice. Glick, best known for her work in the nutrition arena, will be reunited with her former H&K colleague Kenneth Rabin, who joined R-F as senior counselor earlier this year.
 
The firm has also announced the addition of Rich Layne, a 20-year veteran of journalism, Wall Street and public relations, as an executive vice president in New York, where he will lead a newly formed business communications group.
 
Glick will work on clients in the areas of health education, food and nutrition, and patient advocacy, an area that became a personal mission after she took a sabbatical from the PR business to fight a rare form of lymphoma. Since then she has become a specialist in cancer communication.
 
According to Ruder Finn president Kathy Bloomgarden, Glick “is not only a seasoned public relations professional but has a unique understanding of the issues and concerns affecting patients today. Nancy’s extensive expertise in the areas of health and nutrition communications and her personal dedication to advancing patient education will contribute greatly to the strength of Ruder Finn.”
 
Layne, meanwhile, will lead a new group focused on business-to-business and financial communications, advising clients on corporate positioning, media outreach, and investor relations strategy.
 
“Rich’s knowledge of Wall Street and his professional journalism background are real value-added qualities that uniquely enhance his public relations skills,” says RF Americas president Richard Funess. “He will help us expand our corporate financial practice throughout the Ruder Finn network.”
 
Layne began his career as a journalist and wrote for Forbes, American Banker, and Information Week. He was vice president and general manager at Neale-May & Partners and worked as an independent PR consultant immediately prior to joining Ruder Finn.
