US aviation parts giant Fairchild Corporation has moved its PR

business out of a New York agency into the UK based WMC Communications -

the agency owned by former Hill and Knowlton European president David

Wynne-Morgan.



The account is estimated to be worth around pounds 300,000 in fees to

the agency.



As part of the deal Wynne-Morgan will spend one week each month with the

Washington-based firm in his capacity as its newly appointed senior vice

president, corporate communications.



The appointment coincides with the opening of a New York office of

WMC.



The agency will be responsible for investor relations, internal

communications and for liaising with US City journalists for Fairchild,

which is quoted on the New York Stock Exchange.



This last task is a crucial one as the structure of Fairchild has

changed considerably in recent years. It is now the largest producer of

aviation parts in the US.
