Accountancy firm Arthur Andersen is looking for a new head of

public relations, following the departure of Tim Prizeman, who has left

to set up his own public relations agency Kelso Consulting.



Prizeman’s replacement will be in charge of a team of six, including two

events personnel. Arthur Andersen is the accountancy half of Andersen

Worldwide - the other separate business being Andersen Consulting, which

has its own public relations department.



The search for a replacement is being led by marketing director Colin

Bayley, who along with research manager Nick Hayward and the head of

public relations, answers to Arthur Andersen partner Richard

Simmons.



Bayley said: ’We are looking for someone with very wide PR skills to

enable them to make a significant contribution to the organisation.’



Prizeman’s decision to strike out on his own comes after

two-and-a-half-years in the top PR job at Arthur Andersen. He was the

firm’s first dedicated public relations manager.



Prizeman’s previous experience included public relations work for fellow

chartered accountants Deloitte and Touche and BDO Binder Hamlyn.



Kelso Consulting, which opened its doors for business this week, has yet

to sign up its first client. But Prizeman said that he is currently

talking to a number of major companie about their public relations.
