Publishing and arts PR specialist Colman Getty is expanding its UK

operations with an Edinburgh-based office, to open in April.



The Colman Getty Scotland office will be headed by account director

Rebecca Salt, who will leave her position as publicity director at

publishing house Weidenfeld and Nicolson/ Phoenix House this week to

relocate to Edinburgh.



Colman Getty chief executive Dotti Irving, who oversees a team of 11 at

the agency’s only existing office in London, says the consultancy has

been planning the move for some time.



She believes the vibrant media and arts community of Edinburgh will fit

in well with the consultancy’s portfolio, which includes the Booker

Prize, Waterstone’s/Dillons and the National Portrait Gallery.



The group is seeking to handle accounts from the publishing, arts,

media, employment and business spheres in Scotland. ’I’ve had a feeling

over the past year that Edinburgh is where things are happening,’ Irving

said.



While Salt is the only publicity employee hired to staff the Scottish

office to date, Irving says more people will be retained as the business

grows.



’We won’t just be focusing on the Scottish media,’ she said this

week.



’Our Scottish clients will also benefit from the London connection.’
