Russell Stenhouse, ex-joint deputy managing director of Shandwick firm

TPS PR, is to launch his own firm. He has taken two TPS clients with a

combined fee value of around pounds 100,000, Cathay Pacific Airways and

British Holidays, to kick it off with.



Stenhouse spent six years with TPS PR, which merged with fellow

Shandwick agencies Prime Communications and Fleet PR in October to

become Shandwick PR. He told PR Week that he had been offered a

directorship with Shandwick PR but had not taken up the post and is now

launching his own firm - Millennium PR - in January.



Apart from British Holidays and Cathay Pacific, Millennium’s launch

client list includes Cathay Pacific parent company John Swire and Sons

and Bourne Leisure.



Stenhouse, 34, said London-based Millennium will offer corporate and

travel PR. He has recruited three staff, none of whom are from

Shandwick.



Stenhouse stressed that his parting from Shandwick PR was ‘totally

amicable’.



‘I have no axe to grind at all,’ he said. ‘I just decided that the time

was right to start up on my own.’
