The capital’s largest independent public affairs agency, The Kamber
Group, is seeking a buyer. Agency president/CEO Victor Kamber has
admitted his firm is in ’serious conversation’ with a potential suitor.
Although the agency recorded a profit in 1998 and is expected to do so
again this year, it is still trying to overcome a pounds 875,000 loss in
1997. Kamber said the 1997 difficulties have made discussions on selling
the firm ’more immediate’. The group currently boasts fees in excess of
pounds 4.7 million and has a staff of 60.
