Fishburn Hedges has dropped its 18-month search for a director of public

affairs and adopted an internal solution instead.



Graham McMillan, a consultant with the agency since 1994, has been

promoted to associate director and will oversee day-to-day public

affairs work as public affairs manager. This will include deploying and

recruiting staff and identifying new business opportunities. Managing

director John Williams will have overall responsibility for public

affairs at board level.



McMillan, who was with Westminster Strategy before joining FH, explained

that the agency had evolved as an integrated PR provider offering

corporate and financial support and design services as well as public

affairs advice. Setting up a separate public affairs division would thus

be inappropriate, he said.
