Getty hires John McKay as its top lawyer

Getty Images said today it has hired John McKay, the former U.S. attorney for the Western District of Washington, as its general counsel. McKay was one of the eight U.S. attorneys fired by the Bush administration last year, and has been pretty vocal about the incident.

McKay replaces Getty’s current general counsel, Jeff Beyle, who will become a senior vice president for business development.

“Thanks to recent events, I’ve come to appreciate even more the powerful role images play in shaping public perception,” McKay said in a press release announcing the move.
