Canning surfaces in headhunter role

Edelman’s former international president Alison Canning has joined forces with the ex-head of group comms at InterContinental Hotels Dee Cayhill, to launch the PR arm of advertising recruiter Kendall Tarrant.

Cayhill is heading the corporate affairs and PR practice, with Canning in a part-time role as non-exec chairman. It will handle 'six-figure-plus' appointments for heavyweight comms, investor relations, public affairs and CSR roles. It has already been responsible for Martin Liptrot's move from FedEx in the US run Ogilvy EMEA (PRWeek, 13 January).

Canning quit her role at Edelman in July 2003.
