KPMG puts UK PR remit out to pitch in comms review

Top five professional services firm KPMG is pitching its UK PR

business following a group-wide communications review.

KPMG confirmed the account was up for grabs with a number of firms,

including Bell Pottinger, in the running. A decision is expected later

next month.

The news comes as KPMG announces the promotion of UK marketing chief

Nigel Mengham to head marcoms across EMEA. Mengham takes on the expanded

role as part of a group-wide comms refocus.

He said the group increasingly served global clients and needed to think

on a global and regional level: 'With corporate comms we intend to be

more consistent in regional messaging where before we had strong

national messaging.'

'In commercial comms, it is appropriate that we have high impact

messaging across the region,' he added.

Alongside Mengham, internal comms head Katharine White and UK corporate

comms head Gavin Houlgate have been promoted to handle their areas

across EMEA.

'We are looking for a UK agency whose remit includes European projects,'

he said.
