Sanctuary reviews City comms after restructure

The London-based music group that manages Guns ’n’ Roses, Joss Stone and James Blunt is reviewing its financial agency support, having ended a ten-year relationship with Merlin.

Sanctuary Group has already earmarked three City agencies to pitch for the brief.

The firm has undergone a restructure in the past year and is reviewing all consultancy. Its corporate comms team, run by director of corporate and investor relations Philip Ranger, has halved from four staff to two.

The new agency will report to Ranger, and Sanctuary CEO Andy Taylor.

Sanctuary completed a £110m rescue deal this year and restructured its board after several profit warnings. It also promoted UK executive and former British Airways CEO Bob Ayling to group chairman in a ‘disappointing’ 2005. But there was success with Blunt topping the US Billboard chart.
