Edelman PR Worldwide deputy UK managing director Patrick Roberts is

joining former Edelman managing director Abel Hadden at his new

consultancy, Abel Hadden and Company, as a partner.



Roberts leaves Edelman in April after ten years with the agency, where

he headed the corporate, public affairs and crisis divisions. He said:

’While I’m totally happy with Edelman, I need a new stimulation.’



Roberts joined Edelman from the Foreign Office, where his work included

a posting to Paris as press and information coucillor. Pharmaceuticals

company Pfizer and pipeline company PSG International were among his

clients at the agency.



Hadden left Edelman to set up his own consultancy, which specialises in

reputation management, last year.



The agency has also recruited motor racing team F1 Williams’ media

manager Jane Gorard as a partner. Raleigh International PR officer Anne

Sampson joins as a consultant.



Hadden himself is preparing to return to work full-time following

treatment for a cancer which was diagnosed last year.
