Grayling has snapped up Chris Davies, the newly redundant director

of government and public affairs at Bristol Myers Squibb, to head its

Bristol office.



Davies, who was the most senior casualty of a mass shake-up at the drugs

firm earlier this month, will join Grayling on 1 July.



He replaces Caroline Longford who is leaving her job for personal

reasons.



Davies moved to Bristol Myers Squibb in November 1995 from the head of

government affairs post at airport authority BAA.



His job at the pharmaceuticals company was lost as part of a Europe-wide

cost cutting exercise which also claimed the post of public affairs

manager Fiona Stratford.



Bristol vies with Birmingham for the title of Grayling’s top regional

office. It also operates in Nottingham, Glasgow and Edinburgh.



The Bristol office was acquired by Grayling’s parent company Lopex in

1989 when it bought the Rex Stewart PR outfit.



Grayling Bristol’s clients include NatWest Group property and two local

NHS trusts.
