Connelly Partners Appoints Media Director

BOSTON Connelly Partners, one of the region’s most active independent agencies in the past year, has hired Richard Weinstein as media director.

He joins the Boston shop from crosstown agency Arnold and its MPG sibling, both units of Havas, where he spent five years, most recently serving as group media director and working on the American Legacy Foundation’s national “Truth” anti-smoking campaign. Weinstein had previously spent seven years in the media department of Boston’s Houston Herstek Favat.

Connelly (formerly Connelly Partners/CGN) this year has added assignments from Shaw’s Supermarkets, Fallon Community Health Plan, Holmes Group’s Rival Kitchen and Stoneyfield Farm.
