LOS ANGELES: Michael Birkin, recently appointed to Huntsworth's board, has taken a majority position in RPMC, a privately-held firm specializing in event management and marketing programs for the entertainment, sports, and music industries. Birkin will be a partner at the firm and will oversee the strategic expansion of the firm, including a new office opening in New York. Currently, RPMC has offices in Los Angeles and London.

Prior to his appointment to Huntsworth, which takes effect September 1, Birkin was Omnicom Group vice chairman and Asia-Pacific CEO. Sally Withey, COO of Huntsworth, told PRWeek that because Birkin is a non-executive director, he is able to take on other positions and his relationship with RPMC will not affect his work with Huntsworth.

RPMC's clients include Anheuser-Busch, Discovery Channel, and McDonald's; it is also working with the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2010.
