Aidan Relf, an associate director of Burson-Marsteller’s government and

public affairs division, has left to set up on his own with two high-

profile clients already on his books.



Relf launched Relf Government and Media Relations on 1 October, a week

after resigning from B-M, and has already been signed up by Cellnet and

the Training and Enterprise Councils National Council.



Relf handled both of these accounts when he was at B-M. He pitched for

the TEC National Council account, which he will handle in tandem with

The Communication Group and he was awarded the Cellnet business, which

B-M serviced on a project basis, without a pitch.



Both accounts are public affairs-based. The combined fee value of the

two accounts last year was believed to have been more than pounds

100,000.



Relf, who joined B-M’s government and public affairs department as an

account manager in January 1994, after four years with Dewe Rogerson,

said RGMR would ‘focus on public affairs in its broadest sense’.



He added that he hoped to relocate the business, from its current base

in his Woking-home, to a London office as soon as possible.
