O’Brien will report to public affairs director Michael Parker, the
former secretary for the Progressive Democratic party in Ireland.
O’Brien, who starts at the agency next week, spent 10 years at the Irish

Agency managing director John Saunders said the expansion of the public
affairs team was a response to the agency’s growing client base.
