Diary: Will the new son set manage to eclipse the current PR stars?

Following the news of a fledgling hi-tech PR dynasty (PR Week, 12 September), I hear the offspring of another industry name is getting his feet under the table.

Following the news of a fledgling hi-tech PR dynasty (PR Week, 12

September), I hear the offspring of another industry name is getting his

feet under the table.



PR graduate Jamie Wynne-Morgan has just joined Manning Selvage and Lee

as an account executive. His father is, of course, David Wynne-Morgan,

founding partner of strategic consultancy WMC Communications, whose

illustrious career includes time as Hill and Knowlton’s Europe, Middle

East and Africa president and chief executive, and as chairman of its

London office.



MS&L chief executive Jackie Elliot, an old pal of Wynne-Morgan senior

from her own H&K days, tells me Jamie is not a chip off the old

block.



’Oh no,’ she asserts. ’He’s clearly much more talented than his father.’
