Management and IT guru Robert Heller has been appointed as

non-executive chairman of Bourne River, a new post within the agency

which will include hands-on client counsel.



Heller’s main task is to help the agency expand its business, in

co-operation with founder and managing director Sarah Beech. He will

also work on special client projects.



Heller, 66, is famous for his books and articles on IT, marketing,

management and self-development. He began his career as a journalist for

the Financial Times in 1955.



He was the founding editor of Management Today and moved on to become

editorial director of its publisher, Haymarket Publishing - which also

owns PR Week - from 1982 to 1990.



Heller was a non-executive director of Reginald Watts Associates in the

1980s, a corporate PR agency which was taken over by Citigate

Communications in 1991.



Of his latest role he said: ’My job is to help guide Bourne River to

major status in the industry. They are already substantial, but I want

to make them more substantial.’



Bourne River was set up five years ago by Beech and counts 19 staff.



It specialises in IT and corporate strategic consultancy. Clients

include US call centre firm Sitel.
