Will Run Technology Accounts at Arnold
BOSTON–A change in wardrobe and a commute to a different downtown campus is how Jim McGinn sums up his leaving Hill, Holliday, Connors, Cosmopulos, where he was senior vice president and management supervisor, to become second in command to Ken Umansky at crosstown rival Arnold Communications.
As group account manager, McGinn will oversee Arnold’s growing list of technology accounts, which in-cludes EMC, MyWay.com and DowJones.com. He will report to managing partner Umansky.
“Arnold is more casual than Hill, Holliday, so I had to buy a new wardrobe … otherwise, I’m feeling right at home,” he said last week.
McGinn originally joined Hill, Holliday to run the Lotus Development Corp. account and in the ensuing five years had a hand in servicing NEC Technologies and Advanced Micro Devices, among others. McGinn had sought to broaden his client experience and went to work on John Hancock Financial Services. Prior to Hill, Holliday, he had worked at Pagano Schenck & Kay and Leonard/Monahan, both in Providence, R.I.
Assuming his role on Hancock at Hill, Holliday is Leanne Jenkins. She reports to executive vice president Karen Kaplan who was not available for comment. K
