SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Brunswick Group LLC, a leading international corporate communications partnership, today announced that Joe Carberry has joined Brunswick's San Francisco office as a Partner.  Carberry previously served as Head of Global Public Affairs for Visa Inc., during its historic transformation from an association into a global public company and most recently was President of the Western Region of communications firm MS&L Group.

Susan Gilchrist, Brunswick's US Managing Partner, said: "Joe joins Brunswick at an exciting time for our firm, which has experienced significant expansion in California and growth nationally.  Joe is the kind of senior-level strategist in high demand as corporations and their executives manage increasingly complex relationships and critical business issues."

Three years ago Brunswick opened its San Francisco office to serve a growing list of clients on the West Coast and further the firm's cross-border offer.  The office has experienced strong growth since its opening with a client list that includes Cisco, Gap, Intel, McKesson, Visa and more than a dozen other companies.

"Brunswick's private partnership model, specialized expertise and integrated global approach create a unique firm that is as appealing to the people working here as it is to the clients we serve," said Carberry.  "I am honored to join such a distinguished group of advisors.  It is rare to find this level of business, political and communications acumen in one place, all aimed at a single idea: helping the world's leading organizations navigate their most critical issues and take advantage of their most important opportunities."

Carberry has significant experience managing communications during high-profile and high-risk situations, having led a broad range of communications initiatives in a variety of sectors, including financial services, technology, healthcare, entertainment.  In addition to his time at Visa, he worked in politics and counseled a diverse portfolio of corporate clients that include Bayer, Citibank, Disney, WR Hambrecht+Co. and Sony PlayStation.
