Burson-Marsteller is launching its Washington DC-based lobbying

brand BKSH - formerly known as Black, Kelly, Scruggs and Healey - in

London and Brussels.



UK public affairs managing director Jeremy Galbraith is moving over to

head BKSH Europe. BKSH London will be headed by B-M public affairs

director Ian Lindsley.



The new outfit will sit within B-M’s pan-European public affairs

practice and handle government relations.



Once the brand is successfully launched in London and Brussels, it will

be extended to other key European markets.



B-M-owned Brussels government relations firm Robinson Linton Associates

will be rebranded as BKSH. Agency founders John Robinson and Peter

Linton will report to Galbraith, as will Lindsley.



Galbraith’s UK public affairs responsibilities will be taken up by

Quentin Browell, a director within the public affairs practice.



P Annabel James, a director in B-M’s corporate practice, is leaving the

agency after four years to become head of corporate fundraising for

children’s charity NSPCC.
