London local government agency Renaissance has been appointed to
run the PR department of the London Borough of Ealing after PR head Jide
Odusina quit after just 15 months in the job. Odusina was brought in at
the beginning of 1999 by CEO Gillian Guy with a brief of ’stabilising’
the PR function at the council. He had recently started to restructure
the department by bringing in a deputy to help run the 12-strong team.
Renaissance, headed by former Brent Council PR boss John Walker, will
review PR strategy and recommend changes at the council. Odusina is
considering his next move.
