Quentin Browell, deputy managing director of Ludgate Laud, the political

consultancy arm of Ludgate, is to join Burson-Marsteller Government and

Public Affairs as a director.



Commenting on the hiring, B-M divisional managing director Jeremy

Galbraith said: ‘Over the past 18 months we have significantly developed

our government relations capability. Quentin will be the tenth new

appointment.’



Browell’s appointment is to ‘ensure that our growth continues in the UK

marketplace and to take on much of the management of the London team’,

Galbraith added.



Galbraith and Browell previously worked together when they both acted as

advisers to Retailers for Shops Act Reform on its Sunday trading

campaign. ‘When I was looking for a number two in London Browell was the

obvious choice,’ said Galbraith.



Galbraith predicted that his division will see a turnover of pounds 1.5m

this year, although the potential of Browell bringing new clients to B-M

was ‘not something we’ve discussed’, he said.



Browell has a degree in politics and spent nine years in the army before

entering government relations. He was at Rowland Sallingbury Casey for

six years, becoming an associate director before leaving in 1995 to join

Ludgate Laud as deputy managing director.



Browell was unavailable for comment as PR Week went to press.
