Mandy aide in agency move

One of Peter Mandelson's closest aides is moving into agency PR with a senior role at Blue Rubicon, PRWeek has learned.

Patrick Loughran was Mandelson's top media adviser during his most recent spell in government as business secretary. Before working for the 'Prince of Darkness', Loughran was a special adviser in Number 10 and a key figure in Labour's comms operation.

Loughran has spent the past few months advising the campaign for a Yes vote in Thursday's Alternative Vote referendum. But with that campaign having now run its course, he is set to join Blue Rubicon later this month as an associate director.
