Ginsberg, Libby form PR firm

PMK, BWR publicists to launch company in July

Longtime publicists Lee Ginsberg and Chris Libby are leaving their respective PR firms to form their own praisery.

Ginsberg exits PMK/HBH while Libby vacates BWR to launch Ginsberg Libby. New film- and corporate entertainment-centric shingle, to be located in Hollywood, will launch July 1 and will have a staff of seven.

Among the projects the two have worked on, Ginsberg — VP of the film division at PMK/HBH — has a resume that includes pics “Lars and the Real Girl,” “Volver,” “Capote” and “La Vie en Rose.” He also managed the recent Oscar campaign for Academy Award-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.

Libby joined BWR in 2005 and was VP of film and corporate entertainment. Among his films were “The Reader,” “In Bruges” and selected Tyler Perry pics.

“Lee is a great strategist with great relationships,” PMK/HBH CEO Simon Halls told Daily Variety. “He’s incredibly diligent and I’m hoping we’ll continue to work together.”
