Copithorne and Bellows, the US hi-tech agency, has recruited Spec Communication’s former managing director Claire Moran to head up its new UK operation.

Copithorne and Bellows, the US hi-tech agency, has recruited Spec

Communication’s former managing director Claire Moran to head up its new

UK operation.



The agency, which is one of the top IT PR advisers in the US, revealed

plans earlier this year to open a branch in central London (PR Week, 7

February). Based in San Francisco, Copithorne and Bellows is part of

Omnicom’s Porter Novelli International group. It already has an office

in France but is keen to tap into the booming UK hi-tech sector.



Details about the new outfit remain unclear, but it is understood that

Moran will lead a small team to handle work for existing Copithorne and

Bellows clients and to build new business from within the UK. She will

report to international managing director David Schneider in France.



Moran worked at Spec for less than a year where she assisted chief

executive Bill Penn in managing the 14-strong agency. Before that she

was head of Grayling’s technology division.
