NEW YORK, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Marian Salzman, president of Euro RSCG Worldwide PR, North America, today announced three promotions in the agency's New York office: Andrea Kurtz to vice president, and Romey Louangvilay and Morgan Calef to senior account executive.

Andrea Kurtz joined Euro RSCG Worldwide PR in 2007 to support the sanofi-aventis U.S. diabetes franchise. Providing strategic support in development and execution of branded and nonbranded consumer-focused awareness campaigns, Kurtz specializes in patient and celebrity spokesperson and third-party relationship development. She has been integral in creating award-winning work for the S.T.A.N.D. (Start Taking Action Now for Diabetes) social marketing program with sanofi-aventis and T.C.O.Y.D. (Taking Care of Your Diabetes). As a vice president, she will continue to lead the efforts surrounding the diabetes awareness campaign "Diabetes Co-Stars," featuring Paul and Mira Sorvino. Euro RSCG Worldwide PR recently nominated Kurtz for Account Director/Supervisor of the Year for the PR News PR People Awards.

A member of the agency's digital and social media team, Romey Louangvilay supports the efforts of the Digital News Bureau team and manages digital and social media initiatives across a number of clients on the agency roster. His primary responsibilities include assisting with planning and implementing SoMe initiatives to increase clients' online SoMe equity, establishing relationships for clients with online influencers and helping with traditional media outreach. He has grown Euro RSCG WW PR's social media practice from a two-person team to an overarching social media counsel for the agency to provide recommendations, tactics and ideas for new business and ongoing projects that need a social component. Euro RSCG Worldwide PR recently nominated Louangvilay for PRWeek's Young PR Professional of the Year award.

Morgan Calef works on consumer, digital and B2B accounts at Euro RSCG WW PR, where she has been a team member since September 2008. Calef assists as a social media specialist on programs for a variety of retail and corporate accounts in the agency's client portfolio. Her previous experience at the agency includes work on the following accounts: the Prince's Rainforests Project, the Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race and Purina Chef Michael's Canine Creations. Calef's experience overall ranges from traditional public relations tactics and pitching to event management and social media strategies. She was recently given the agency's Good Life Award, a quarterly honor that recognizes stellar account performance, and she will be Euro RSCG Worldwide PR's social media representative at the Council of Public Relations Firms' 2010 Critical Issues Forum held tomorrow in New York.

"We are delighted to recognize the outstanding work of these three young team members," Salzman said. "In addition to their individual strengths on client business, they are all expert in the one thing that is becoming not only the greatest agent of change for young people around the world but also a supremely important branding and marketing tool for all companies: social media. They are passionate about its importance in business and in life. Andrea, Romey and Morgan will use their fine-tuned skills in many areas to continue developing client strategies and helping Euro RSCG Worldwide PR strengthen our offering overall."
