The government relations arm of Burson-Marsteller’s public affairs

operation, BKSH, has poached Frances Luff, private secretary to foreign

and commonwealth affairs minister Peter Haine.



She joined BKSH this week as manager, effectively associate director,

and reports to director Ian Lindsley.



This completes the creation of a second tier of management under

Lindsley.



The other manager is Roger Lowry and the team is now ten-strong.



Luff will manage the Transworld Metal, Digene and Tate and Lyle

accounts.



Lindsley said: ’Our philosophy has always been to have a balanced

political team, made up of people who have worked across the board: with

political parties; as political journalists, and in the civil service.

Frances brings real current experience of working in government and

understanding the process from a civil servant’s point of view.’



Luff, 34, joined the civil service as a graduate ten years ago.
