Kev O'Sullivan launched the agency three years ago alongside Lotte Jones. Both had previously been associate directors at Blue Rubicon.

O'Sullivan's LinkedIn page does not list another job role.

Jones is now heading up Surname & Surname, while Miranda Haire has recently joined the agency as associate director, from Ketchum. Haire was one of the founding members of DeVries SLAM. 

Last month, PRWeek reported that Teneo Holdings had acquired Blue Rubicon and UK PR agency StockWell, creating one of the largest comms practices in Europe. Under the deal both agencies will start collaborating on financial and corporate reputation management issues. The aim is for the London operations to be combined and co-located in the "near future", reporting to Teneo International chairman Charles Watson.
