Chime Communications, the holding company of Bell Pottinger, is

launching a new financial PR agency called Smithfield Financial.



The consultancy will be run separately from Bell Pottinger Financial,

Chime’s current financial PR business. Bell Pottinger Financial

directors John Antcliffe and John Kiely and associate director Michael

Oke will leave the agency to establish Smithfield.



Smithfield will provide financial and investor relations services for UK

and international companies with a particular focus on European markets

and cross-border merger and acquisition work. The launch is evidence

that Chime is willing to nurture top directors.



Smithfield will open its doors in early October and several Bell

Pottinger clients, including Enterprise Oil, Scottish and Newcastle and

Stagecoach, will move across.



Mark Woolfenden, a manager at Dewe Rogerson will join Smithfield from

its launch.
