Global communications firm Allison+Partners has appointed Lisa Rosenberg, David Wolf and Jerry Zhu to the role of agency partner.
Rosenberg, who holds the title of chief creative officer, joined A+P in 2013 from Euro RSCG Worldwide (now Havas Worldwide), where she was president. Prior to that Rosenberg was with Omnicom unit Porter Novelli for more than two decades, joining in 1990 as an account executive and rising through the ranks before eventually becoming senior partner, director of global brand marketing and managing director of the agency’s New York office. She got her start in PR as an account executive for Hill & Knowlton Strategies.
Wolf, who’s also been with A+P since 2013, is managing director of the agency’s China practice. Prior to joining the agency, he led Burson-Marsteller’s Asia-Pacific technology division and was also COO and managing director of Beijing-based public affairs consultancy Claydon Gescher Associates. He was also president and CEO of Beijing-based strategic corporate communications advisory firm Wolf Group Asia. He was A+P’s first employee to be stationed in China.
Zhu, also based in China, serves as managing director for A+P in Beijing. He joined the agency when it acquired his corporate communication and tech shop, Century PR, where he served as general manager. Prior to founding that firm in 2013, Zhu was GM at Australia’s largest PR firm, PPR. He was also formerly a senior consultant in Hill & Knowlton’s Beijing office, and held stints at FleishmanHillard and MS&L Group
