Manchester United plc and sports and leisure group ENIC have moved
their financial PR to Holborn PR, following John Bick’s transfer to the
agency from Financial Dynamics.
Bick left Financial Dynamics to become executive director at Holborn
last week. Holborn was set up by his brother David last year.
However, Financial Dynamics will continue to work on the Manchester
United account, with chief executive Nick Miles as strategic consultant
The Manchester United account is something of a talisman for John
He first worked on it at the time of the club’s flotation in 1991 while
he was at Brunswick. When he moved to Financial Dynamics in 1995, the
client moved in the same direction.
ENIC became a Financial Dynamics client in late 1997. It holds stakes in
a number of football clubs, including Scottish side Glasgow Rangers,
Greek team AEK Athens, Italian Vicenza and Czech outfit Slava Prague, as
well as in the leisure and retail sector.
David Bick, chief executive of Holborn PR, said: ’If clients want to go
in one direction, you are not going to argue with them.’
Holborn will carry out a full financial communications program with
financial press liaison and investor relations to analysts. Both
contracts are held on a retainer basis.
