NEW YORK — Sabrina Guttman has joined Finn Partners as head of its global tech practice.

Guttman was hired to further the growth of the practice while also working with existing clients.  She reports to founding managing partner and CEO Peter Finn.

Guttman has roughly 25 years of experience in tech communications, having worked both in-house and for agencies. She joins Finn from global venture capital firm Next47, where she led global marketing communications.

Before Next47, Guttman was VP of strategic communications for Hewlett Packard Enterprise, where she managed all communications activities for HPE’s business units globally. Experience also includes serving as US technology practice leader and global client leader at Burson-Marstellar.

"I am thrilled to have Sabrina Guttman on board as a managing partner and our global technology practice leader,” said Finn. “Technology is one of our largest practice areas and continues to grow at a rapid pace. We are excited to have Sabrina bring her talents and track record to help us with the continuous evolution of this part of our business.”

Guttman joins Finn’s tech practice in midst of growth that has made it a $40 million, 200-person operation. In Jully, the practice expanded with the acquisition of tech agency Barokas Communications, which has offices in Seattle and Denver and specializes in early stage, emerging and high growth technology companies.
