Adie, whose client work at MS&L included Philips, General Motors Acceptance Corporation and Eli Lilly, will work on Securicor at CDR, providing corporate and financial PR counsel.
CDR MD Jonathan Flint said that since Adie joined last week he has been involved in several ongoing pitches that covered the IT, industry and financial services sectors. ‘Adie’s hire is principally a reflection of flow of new business in corporate areas. There is a lot of new business in corporate, technical and trade PR, which we are actively pitching at present,’ he said.
Adie’s hire coincides with the hire of three managers across a number of practices. Teresa Chick has joined as senior account manager from JP Morgan. She will also act as deputy to investment management practice director James McDonald.
James Hasfeth has been hired as manager for the tech arm from Edelman. Crawford Warnock has joined the software & services and telecoms practice as manager from Reed Personnel Services where he was PR manager.
