Raggett picks up CEO post at Lexis

Lexis Public Relations CEO Hugh Birley is to take a back seat from 1 August and operations director Margot Raggett will run the agency.

Birley will become chairman, working four days a week. He said he would be pursuing non-PR-related ‘business interests with friends’ on the remaining working day and ‘possibly a bit of fishing’.

Birley became CEO in 2002, when he and Raggett led a four-strong management buyout from founders Bill Jones and Tim Adams (PRWeek, 20 April 2002).

Lexis is majority owned by Next Fifteen Communications.
