NEW YORK — Edelman has tapped Zeno’s Oscar Suris to run its New York operation.

As New York president, Suris will oversee Edelman’s largest global office, which has 800-plus employees. He will report to US CEO Lisa Osborne Ross.

Suris replaces Deirdre Latour, who left Edelman in November after 18 months in the role. She has since joined Madison Square Garden Entertainment as CCO.

Suris joined Edelman sister agency Zeno two years ago as executive managing director, C-suite strategy & crisis communications. Before that, Suris spent nine years leading corporate comms for Wells Fargo, which he left in 2018 in the aftermath of the bank’s fake account scandal.

“Oscar is a proven leader and a seasoned counselor who will set the pace and tone for our New York operation, which remains one of our strongest contributors in terms of client work and culture. His career history alone demonstrates his ability to deliver best-in-class work in high-stakes situations,” said Ross. “Moreover, his inclusive, empathetic approach is obvious to those who meet him and furthers our commitment to our people.
