Clerkenwell Communications, the financial PR agency launched last
month by John Coyle (PR Week, 12 March), has acquired executive training
company Raymond Rudd Consultants (RRC).
RRC was one of the first businesses Coyle purchased for Broad Street
after founding the agency with former partner Brian Basham in 1981.
Rudd himself joins the Clerkenwell Communications team as head of
executive training. RRC offers courses in broadcast media training
including presentation, time management and general communications
Raymond Rudd clients include M&C Saatchi, British Gas Transco, the Bank
of England, London Electricity, BBC Television and Andersen
’Ray has an attractive client list and we will be looking to
client-share between the businesses,’ said Emma Kane, managing director
of Clerkenwell Communications.
RRC will continue to operate under its current name because of the
reputation it has within the industry, she added.
Clients already signed up with Clerkenwell Communications include
restaurant Le Gavroche, Barclays Stockbrokers and biotechnology company
