You may have heard that Jordan Johnson and Rebecca Tennille recently had left Cranford Johnson Robinson Woods. The pair had represented a big account at CJRW: the Clinton Foundation and Library.
So the question becomes: Who’s now spokesman for that big account?
Richard McKeown, senior vice president and chief public relations officer at CJRW, told Whispers “we have not been officially notified that we’re not” still representing the foundation and library.
And Tennille said her departure was her idea and she’s still working on her next steps, but in the meantime she remains the contact for the foundation and library.
A statement from Wayne Woods, chairman and CEO of CJRW, cited a media report that Johnson would be running next year for the District 35 House seat in the Arkansas Legislature and noted that CJRW has a policy prohibiting employees from seeking election to or serving in partisan political office. A call to Johnson wasn’t returned as of press time.
Also departing CJRW were Caroline Puddephatt, who moved to Ghidotti Communications to serve as a public relations account executive, and Bryan Jones, who’s joining Eric Rob & Isaac.
