Global public affairs consultancy GPC is seeking its first chairman

for the newly created role - head of Europe.



Sir Ian Wrigglesworth, GPC London’s chairman for the past two years, is

standing down after deciding that his business commitments in the

northeast of England meant he was unable to contribute the necessary

time to the role.



The role has been upgraded to European chairman to reflect GPC’s

ambitions to further grow business across Europe, which witnessed 22 per

cent fee growth in 1999.



Wrigglesworth’s departure is part of a wider reorganisation of GPC

Europe’s senior management. Maria Laptev and Louise Harvey have been

appointed vice-chairmen of GPC Brussels. Both will report to GPC

Brussels’ chief executive Julia Harrison.



Thomas Bols, a director of GPC Brussels for four years, is being

promoted to the post of executive director of operations for GPC across

Europe, also reporting to Harrison.



Louise Tinkler, currently head of the agency’s environment practice in

Brussels, is being transferred to London and promoted to associate

director.



She will report to GPC London’s managing director Peter Bingle.
