Parriss becomes Blueprint partner

LONDON/BRUSSELS: Blueprint Partners has installed Debbie Parriss, the ex-MD of the former Countrywide Porter Novelli, in a partner and shareholder role.

Parriss joined Blueprint around six months ago as an associate. She is now running a five-strong corporate comms arm for the Brussels-based agency, though she is based in the UK.

The agency has 25 staff in Brussels, and two - including Parriss - in the UK. ‘Blueprint has always done corp­orate comms and issues management, but there has been so much demand that we are now expanding those
separately,' said managing partner Julia Harrison.

Parriss set up crisis specialist Razor PR with Chris Woodcock in 1999, but left the agency last summer (PRWeek, 20 August 2005).

Before that, both Woodcock and Parriss worked for CPN, the latter for around a decade, rising to become managing director of its Banbury office in 1997.
