Fox Rothschild CMO is Leaving for Cozen O’Connor
The revolving doors of the Philadelphia marketing community continue, and this time one local firm is borrowing from another.
Fox Rothschild Chief Marketing Officer Jim Staples, who has been with the firm for a little more than three years, is moving a block down Market Street to Cozen O’Connor where he will be the firm’s new CMO.
His last day at Fox Rothschild is Aug. 29. Staples replaces Anne Casey, who was the first to hold the position at Cozen O’Connor and had been there since March 2006. It is unclear why or when Casey left the firm.
Marketing consultant Stacy West Clark called Staples a “true star in this industry.” She said any firm is lucky to have him. Clark characterized Staples as a class act who is consistently happy and optimistic.
“Nothing brings him down,” she said.
Fox Rothschild isn’t the only firm that has seen departures of high-level marketers recently. Wolf Block CMO Julie Amos left this month for the director of marketing position at Kilpatrick Stockton in Atlanta.
Jennifer Smuts left Woodcock Washburn for Delaware-based Connolly Bove Lodge & Hutz where she is the director of marketing. Robin Nolan left her director of marketing role at White & Williams for a job outside of the legal industry.
