NEW YORK, December 1—David Walke, former CEO of investor relations powerhouse Morgen-Walke Associates, has been named chief executive of Find/SVP, the knowledge services company, after he and a partner acquired a substantial equity interest in the company.
 
Walke and partner Martin Franklin led an investor group that purchased 2,500,000 new shares from the company and acquired all of the 2,688,363 shares held by SVP and SVP International, the company’s largest shareholders, for the equivalent of $.80 per share. Franklin, chairman and CEO of Marlin Holdings, a private investment form, will serve as chairman of the company.
 
Says Walke, “We believe Find/SVP represents an excellent opportunity to expand our presence in the rapidly growing knowledge services industry. As companies look at new ways to maintain a competitive advantage in this uncertain economic environment, the information and knowledge services that have been provided by FIND/SVP over its 30 year operating history become increasingly
important and valuable.
 
“Equally important, FIND/SVP represents a unique platform to build an exciting and highly profitable company, through both internal development and strategic acquisitions.”
