Velcro tenders its UK PR account

Velcro Limited has put its UK consumer and trade PR account up for grabs, following the departure of Paul Carroll from its incumbent agency Communique PR.

Three agencies have been shortlisted to pitch for the account, including Communique, with a decision expected at the end of the month.

The company is planning to launch a range of new camping, snowboard and outdoor safety products early next year.

Communique PR has held the account for three and a half years. Since agency founder Carroll announced he was leaving in June, Communique has lost the Thorntons account to Borkowski PR with a review pending of its Focus Wickes account early next year.

l Communique PR has called in freelance consultant Christian Williams as temporary MD. He was formerly director of corporate comms for surgical systems manufacturer the Gyrus Group.
