Watson Wyatt pitches European PR

Professional services group Watson Wyatt is on the hunt for a PR agency to advise the European arm of its investment consultancy practice.

This is a newly created brief as the firm seeks to exploit promotions around the pensions debate, that is gathering pace, especially in the UK.

The move follows the hire last year of client development consultant Paul Deane-Williams as Watson Wyatt Investment Consulting’s first dedicated corporate communications professional.

It is understood that Deane-Williams, based at the firm’s headquarters in Reigate, Surrey, is seeking support on corporate comms issues.

A Watson Wyatt source said the firm needed ‘more help as the debate surrounding pensions continues to grow’.

The source added that it was hoped an agency would be appointed ‘within weeks’.
