In the Departure Lounge: Sunshine State News’ Eric Giunta, Hill+Knowlton’s Patrick Slevin

in Uncategorized by

In today’s email inbox were two interesting messages revealing the arrival of two politicos in the Departure Lounge.

First up is Eric Giunta. “While journalism has been a tremendously enriching experience, after covering law and politics over the past year I decided I wanted to try my hand at formal legal practice,” Giunta emailed me. 

Also in the Departure Lounge is Patrick Slevin, formerly of public affairs juggernaut Hill+Knowlton.  

H+K’s Harry Costello tells me, “We were disappointed to hear that Patrick felt it was time to look at new opportunities, but we are also understanding of his desire to expand his professional  growth.” 

Having gotten to know Patrick pretty well over the past couple of months, there is no doubt that, in whatever new opportunity he pursues, Patrick will find success.
