Kerr abandons own agency to move to Bulletin

Global PR agency Bulletin International has taken on a deputy

managing director with a specific brief to lead its new business

development team.

Jane Kerr joins from her own agency, Forge PR, to head the division and

join the consultancy's five-strong London management team. Oxford-based

Forge will no longer trade, but at present Kerr could not confirm if

clients would be going with her to Bulletin.

Reporting to managing director Lucy Tilbury, Kerr has an initial remit

to build up offerings in the healthcare and crisis communications/issues

management sectors.

Prior to founding Forge, Kerr worked at Companycare Communications,

where she set up its industry and employee communications division.

She was also the first ever communications manager appointed to an NHS

authority - Berkshire Healthcare Authority - which saw her handling PR

in the aftermath of the Hungerford massacre in the late 1980s.

Previously, she worked as an account director at Burson-Marsteller in

its health and issues division.

Bulletin International currently has offices in London, New York, San

Francisco, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Hong Kong. It employs 60 staff

worldwide, including 25 in the UK. Clients include Philips, Motorola,

and Rolls Royce.
