PUBLIC SECTOR: CRE hires FH for public affairs and PR aid

The Commission for Racial Equality’s communications and policy head, Phil Barnett, has brought in Fishburn Hedges to provide short-term public affairs and PR support for the organisation. The agency has been retained to bolster the currently depleted communications function at the body. The move comes ahead of the planned appointment of a new head of communications for the first time in 18 months along with a new head of campaigns. The CRE’s last dedicated PR head, Majoria Thompson, left in 1997 to found Saatchi and Saatchi’s cause-related marketing agency Cause Connection. Barnett was handed the communications and policy brief in 1999.
