This top ten includes industry heavyweights in the corporate comms sector, with Hardie moving up one place. It comes soon after US-headquartered Teneo removed the sub-branding across its global operations, which has seen the phasing out of established agency monikers, including Blue Rubicon in the UK.

Hardie is a key player at Teneo’s UK operations, helping merge Blue Rubicon and its other acquired agencies into one business in recent years.

Teneo is thought to generate in the region of £45m in the UK and represents 24 of the FTSE100.

With Salt as CEO, Headland has been among the fastest growing UK PR agencies in the past couple of years on the back of major client wins including PepsiCo UK, Three UK and Mulberry.

The UK Power Book is an extensive list of the most influential and respected comms professionals in the UK today.

The guide, complete with Q&As from each of the nearly 400 entrants, is available online:
