Top two chiefs at Cordiant-owned BCI depart group

Cordiant Communications subsidiary Business Communications

International (BCI) this week lost both CEO Nick Miles and group MD Hugh

Morrison.



The loss of Miles, the former CEO of Cordiant's Financial Dynamics, and

Morrison, formerly FD's international MD, leaves a question mark over

the future of the BCI brand.



Neither Miles nor Morrison were available for comment as PRWeek went to

press, but it is understood they were placed on six months gardening

leave at a surprise meeting with Cordiant representatives earlier this

week. They are now thought to be consulting lawyers.



BCI was created two years ago as Cordiant's global PR brand, covering

agencies such as FD in the UK and Morgen-Walke Associates in the US.



FD chief executive Charles Watson said the announcement will not affect

FD: 'It's business as normal for our consultancy. Cordiant is still

committed to building up its international business.'



Cordiant and its PR consultancy College Hill declined to comment on the

matter.
