STAMFORD, January 7—High-tech giant Waggener Edstrom has opened its first office on the east coast. Wagg Ed, which recently picked up a significant chunk of MasterCard business, is opening its New York Metro office in Stamford, Conn. It will be led by senior vice presidents LeeAnne French and Keith Lindenburg and will serve several east coast clients, including MasterCard.
 
The agency’s analyst relations and enterprise strategies offerings, led by former Gartner analyst Jonathan Yarmis, vice president, also will be based in the new office.
 
“Waggener Edstrom has had the privilege of working with companies to capture and hold leadership positions and to help set the market agenda,” says French, a six-year veteran of the firm who previously led new business and recruiting efforts as well as drove the agency’s global efforts to support SAP, which recently defected to Burson-Marsteller. “We’re very excited to have a presence here, and we see the central location of Stamford as a key to opening up our business development efforts and servicing new clients up and down the eastern seaboard.”
 
Lindenburg most recently led the east coast operations of Weber Shandwick Worldwide, and joined Wagg Ed late last year as senior vice president. He has held senior communications positions with IBM, Computer Associates and Symbol Technologies.
 
Waggener Edstrom had 2000 revenues of $56 million, making it the 15th largest PR firm in the country. Its clients include Microsoft Corporation and Siemens.
