The shift came suddenly, amidst whispers of a growing rift between

client and PR firm. Neither agency nor a spokesperson from AllBusiness

would confirm rumors that spotty account service and high agency

turnover were behind the decision to seek new PR counsel.



Bringing AllBusiness aboard is somewhat of a coup for Connors, allowing

the agency - known best for its work with consumer-oriented Internet

clients such as CNET and Webvan - to continue its expansion into the

business-to-business market. Since SVP/GM Scott Allison’s arrival at

Connors/SF in September, the agency has added at least two other clients

in this sector, including RemarQ and Snippets.com.



Under Allison’s stewardship, Connors has also expanded its West Coast

presence with last week’s opening of an LA-area branch. Allison

recruited former Gable Group colleague Scott Pansky to head up the new

Santa Monica office, which will take advantage of what Allison called

’the increasing convergence between Hollywood and Silicon Valley.’



Allison also hinted that a Southland acquisition could be close at hand

for Connors, though he would not disclose any potential targets.
