NEW YORK – Mitchell Communications Group has hired Ketchum's Brett Carrey as GM/SVP of the firm’s New York office. 

Carrey will initially be responsible for helping expand the agency’s overall presence and growing the New York client portfolio while also providing strategic counsel to the firm’s existing clients.

Earlier this year, Mitchell Communications Group joined the Dentsu Network as the lead agency in the group’s first global PR network. Mitchell subsequently expanded its presence by opening offices in New York and Chicago to support existing clients, as well as to begin building for the future.

Carrey was most recently at Ketchum where he led the New York consumer technology practice. Prior to joining Ketchum, he was an SVP at MSLGROUP where he led integrated marketing teams. He's also held senior posts at Burson Marsteller and Porter Novelli.
