Cardiff office to boost PPS Welsh lobbying ability

PPS local and regional is to establish an office in Cardiff to step

up its lobbying of the devolved Welsh assembly.

The office will be headed by associate director Cathy Owens, who joins

from Strategy Wales and is tasked with putting the infrastructure

together for the opening of the bureau in October.

Of the launch, Owens said: 'The PPS offer in Wales has not until now

been exploited.

I plan to change that.'

A second associate director, Nick Carrell, has been drafted in to take

control of the firm's Manchester office, heading the PPS North team.

He joins from Orion Publishing after previous stints in corporate and

financial PR.

He succeeds Keith Butterick who has left the firm by mutual consent.

Both Carrell and Owens report to PPS local and regional MD Nick Keable.
