Ex-Kennedy aide takes Insight job

Olly Kendall, the former deputy press secretary to ex-Lib Dem leader Charles Kennedy, has joined one-year-old consultancy Insight Public Affairs.

Kendall worked in Kennedy’s office for around two years, latterly reporting to his then press secretary Jackie Rowley, now director of comms at the General Medical Council.

He has joined Insight as an account manager and will lead the consultancy’s new-business operation, reporting to MD John Lehal.

Kendall worked on Mark Oaten’s unsuccessful Lib Dem leadership campaign early last year (PRWeek, 13 January 2006) and has since worked as a freelance journalist.

Prior to launching Insight (PRWeek, 6 January 2006) Lehal worked at Edelman.
