NEWS: H&K loses Vaux Group to Citigate

Vaux Group, the Sunderland-based brewer and hotel operator, has switched its estimated pounds 50,000 financial PR account from Hill and Knowlton to Citigate after eight years.

Vaux Group, the Sunderland-based brewer and hotel operator, has switched

its estimated pounds 50,000 financial PR account from Hill and Knowlton

to Citigate after eight years.



The hiring, made shortly before the publication of the group’s financial

results last week, followed competitive pitches by Citigate, Ludgate and

Brunswick.



Vaux’s director of group PR Hilary Florek said that after eight years

with the same agency the company felt it was time to review PR

arrangements.



The loss of Vaux leaves H&K with only a handful of City PR accounts. But

deputy chairman Alan Ogden denied that the switch to Citigate was a blow

for Hill and Knowlton. ‘It’s always sad to lose a client but after so

many years a change can be a good thing,’ he said.
