Political Planning Services has appointed William Hague’s former
diary secretary to the position of account executive.
David Gold, who ran the Conservative leader’s private office for two
years, started last Monday. He brings to 30 the staff working at the
agency’s London headquarters.
Before working for Hague, Gold was a researcher in the Westminster
office of Tory MP Geoffrey Clifton-Brown.
Gold will report to PPS director Nick Keable. Keable said that, despite
Gold’s appointment at account executive level, the company had big plans
for him. ’He will be working on a range of very high-profile,
London-based accounts,’ Keable said.
Gold said: ’PPS’s focus on grassroots politics is a tremendously
valuable, but much overlooked, element of any communications
PPS emerged in PR Week’s rankings this year as the fastest growing
agency over the past five years.
