Blue chip energy company Centrica has awarded its corporate and City brief to Bell Pottinger after seven years with RLM Finsbury.

In addition to owning British Gas, the FTSE 100 constituent has interests in oil and gas exploration and production, power generation and trading.

Finsbury is understood to have declined an invitation to take part in pitches last month.

The brief – estimated by one agency figure to be worth a high six-figure sum – is believed to be also likely to include an element of public affairs, though public affairs-specific agencies are not being sought.
