Richard Linning, co-owner of top ten Brussels agency Public
Relations Partners, has been elected president of CERPS, the European
Confederation of Public Relations Associations. CERPS represents
associations like the IPR, whose members are individual PR practitioners
as opposed to agencies.
He succeeds Thomas Achelis, chairman of Achelis and Partner in
Linning will be president for a two-year term. ’My mandate is to make
CERPS work much more efficiently as a forum and promote interchange
between countries,’ said Linning.
