AS Biss and Co, the lobbying firm which acquired the remains of Ian Greer Associates, has lost the contract for courier company DHL to Shandwick Public Affairs.

AS Biss and Co, the lobbying firm which acquired the remains of Ian

Greer Associates, has lost the contract for courier company DHL to

Shandwick Public Affairs.



Shandwick won the business this week after pitching against AS Biss, GJW

and Westminster Communications. (PR Week, 4 April).



AS Biss managing director Adele Biss adopted the account when she took

over the bulk of IGA during the ’cash for questions’ scandal last

October.



DHL PR and sponsorship manager Liz Hauxwell said: ’We chose Shandwick

for their experience across all the main political parties and because

they have lots of research resources.’



The loss of the DHL account follows a similar move by BA, which dropped

Biss in favour of Market Access in January.



Among those who have opted to stay with Biss are: Asda, Cadbury

Schweppes, Kingfisher, the London Taxi Board and the National Dairy

Council. Biss has also been retained by the package tour industry body,

the Federation of Tour Operations, to advise on a range of issues such

as the recent increase in airport passenger duty.



The company is also working for RADAR (the Royal Association for

Disability and Rehabilitation).
