ELGIN SYFERD/DDB NEEDHAM: SEATTLE AD/PR AGENCY ANNOUNCES PROMOTIONS

 SEATTLE, Dec. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Approaching the end of the purchase agreement with DDB/Needham Worldwide, Elgin Syferd Advertising and Public Relations today announced three promotions of executives in its Seattle office.
 "These changes will bolster an already strong management team and enable us to provide our clients with superior strategic communication solutions," said Ron Elgin, president.
 Those promoted include: Jan Edmondson from executive vice president/managing director to chairman/chief operating officer; Sydney Hunsdale from senior vice president/media director to executive vice president; and Tim Pavish from senior vice president/director of client services advertising to executive vice president.
 With Elgin Syferd for more than nine years, Edmondson has built a reputation as an innovative strategic thinker dedicated to total client service. He has worked on virtually every agency account, most recently McDonald's, JanSport, METRO and Wigwam Mills Inc.
 Hunsdale's management responsibilities have grown immensely during her 10 years with the agency. In addition to building Elgin Syferd's media department into one of the most respected in the country, Sydney has become nationally recognized in the advertising industry.
 A strong leader, Pavish has been in the forefront of business growth for the agency and currently leads some of the agencies' largest accounts, including Holland America Lines, Grey Line of Alaska and Washington Natural Gas. Pavish has been with Elgin Syferd/DDB Needham for more than 10 years.
 "These promotions are a part of our overall strategic evolution, but they also represent recognition of the outstanding achievements of these three individuals," said Elgin.
 Seattle-based Elgin Syferd/DDB Needham, a full-service communications company with capabilities in advertising, public relations, media and design was founded in 1981. The agency, a subsidiary of DDB Needham Worldwide, employs more than 90 people and has annual billings in excess of $60 million.
