Intellect, which is five years old, wants to increase the exposure of its director general John Higgins.
Traditionally Intellect has held its PR function in-house, but looked for agency support for this specific brief.
‘We'll be providing and supporting speaker opportunities and events until the end of the year,' said Bite associate director Eileen Boydell - and account head, reporting to Intellect head of PR Deborah Nazareth.
John Higgins has worked in IT since 1975 becoming director general of CSSA, a predecessor of Intellect's, in April 1998. He was awarded a CBE in 2005.
Intellect acts for around 800 organisations of varied size including BAE Systems, IBM, Intel, LogicaCMG and Microsoft.
