GPC Market Access has lostthree staff members in the past
fortnight, in the wake of GPC’s takeover of public policy consultancy
Prima Europe last February.
Tamsin Richmond-Watson, one of eight directors at the agency, and a
healthcare specialist whose clients are believed to include Johnson and
Johnson, will join APCO Associates. Also joining APCO is Robert Halfon,
a consultant specialising in political analysis. Consultant Katherine
Edwards is leaving for Tesco.
In a parallel move, it has been confirmed that APCO has also recruited
Peter Robinson, who left GPC earlier this month. Robinson previously
headed GPC’s British Airways account.
Commenting on the departures, John Dickie, managing director of GPC
Market Access and former CEO of Prima, said: ’The truth is people change
jobs. We are actively looking to replace them’.
