Wrigley UK hands Jackie Cooper its consumer PR brief

Wrigley UK has made Jackie Cooper PR its first appointee in a

consumer promotions role.

The global gum giant already works with Luther Pendragon on corporate

strategy, TBP Eurobrand on communications with dentalcare professionals,

and James Reed PR on trade communication.

basis by associate director Anna Cowie, will report to Wrigley UK

communications manager Jo Hartop. It is understood that JCPR won the

brief after a three-way pitch.

the media they read, the places they go, and the friends they talk


JCPR's work will focus on the Orbit, Airwaves and Extra brands, as well

as providing Wrigley with its 'first general across the board


No research and evaluation appointment has been made, although Cooper

confirmed that it would play a 'very important' part in its campaign,

and an external appointment will 'probably' be made.
