Camelot’s former director of communications, David Rigg, has set up

his own consultancy following his departure from the lottery operator

last month.



Rigg, who has named his agency Project Associates, will provide high

level advice to corporate clients on media and political relations. He

is currently in discussions with a number of companies but could not yet

confirm any clients.



Rigg said that he had been approached by a number of companies and

agencies after his decision to leave Camelot was announced in August,

but ultimately decided he wanted to be ’a practitioner rather than a

manager’.



’I want to keep the business small, with perhaps ten clients in a couple

of years’ time. I’ve no intention of building an empire,’ Rigg told PR

Week.



Rigg’s decision to resign from Camelot in August came as a surprise and

followed the furore in May over ’fat cat’ bonuses for Camelot

directors.



His role was split between head of public affairs, Louise White, and

head of parliamentary affairs, Richard Brown.
