Bite Communications has been taken on to handle PR for internet
applications provider Vignette.
The agency takes over from Porter Novelli Convergence Group (PNCG)
following a three-way pitch. PNCG, which has worked for Vignette since
1999, declined to re-pitch.
Bite group account director Grant Currie heads a five-strong team,
including account director Charlotte Eddy.
The team, which is retained with £100,000 fees, reports to Nicola
Taylor, Vignette EMEA corporate communications manager.
Taylor was previously an account director at Bite but left two years
ago. She said while the company was happy with its coverage in the
technology media it needed to raise its profile in the business media,
particularly in the national press.
Vignette joins Cisco and Apple on Bite's client list.
