Jim Dunn, one of the best-known personalities in travel PR, has

been taken on by his long time friend and former rival Bronwyn Gold

Blyth.



Dunn, who sold his agency TPS to Shandwick in 1990, joins Gold Blyth’s

agency BGB Associates this week as a director.



He will work alongside Gold Blyth and fellow directors Debbie Hindle and

Francis Armitage, as well as two associate directors Jo Heyes and Sonia

Haines.



Dunn will have an open brief, said Gold Blyth, which will cover new

business and existing BGB clients including the Australian Tourist

Commission and travel agent Lunn Poly.



’Jim and I have pitched against each other many times so it’s great to

have him here now,’ said Gold Blyth.



Dunn started TPS in 1970 - the first PR agency which specialised in

travel clients. He sold it to Shandwick in 1990, but stayed on as

chairman and chief executive.



In October last year, Dunn announced that he would be leaving TPS early

in 1997. The news coincided with Shandwick’s decision to rebrand TPS and

two other PR agencies as Shandwick Public Relations.
