First&42nd hires FTSE man as MD

First&42nd, the CSR comms business owned by Edelman, has snared FTSE Group public affairs director Peter de Graaf as MD.

De Graaf replaces Jane Atkin, an early employee of First&42nd, who left to start a rival business at Tulchan Communications (PRWeek, 24 June).

But it has emerged that Atkin is taking time out – Tulchan founder Andrew Grant said the venture's launch was on hold. Atkin said she was working privately for a longstanding client and had yet to decide on the Tulchan job.

De Graaf has been FTSE's PA director for 18 months after five years as MD of its EMEA Business Unit.
