The Economist

Having parted company with Speed Communications after a 10 year contract, the Economist has appointed Lansons Communications as its retained PR agency. Charles Barber of the Economist had the following to say about the changeover:

'Following a robust tender process, which included our editorial colleagues, we have appointed Lansons with immediate effect to work with us. The Economist’s paid-for circulation is growing and we would like to ensure we are seen as a must read for all progressives including the next generation. The Economist’s innovation is already widely recognised with new apps like Espresso and Lansons will help us as we continue to push for change and drive innovation.' [15]

Isle of Man

In Sept 2008, Lansons landed the PR account to promote the Isle of Man as an international centre for business and finance - one of its biggest client wins to date. The three-year contract is believed to be worth in excess of £250,000 a year in fees. The agency will be charged with enhancing the island’s economic reputation and raising its profile throughout the world. Much of the work will be concentrated on the UK, but it will also include a focus on such diverse parts of the world as Washington and Asia. Part of the brief is to differentiate the Isle of Man positively from other European financial centres, such as Jersey. The account will be led by chief executive Tony Langham. Head of public affairs Ben Abbotts, head of Lansons Live Christian Mahne, and associate director Lyndsay Haywood are also on the 16-person team.[16]

Representing shareholders

Lansons also set up a lobbying group on behalf of client The Share Centre who wanted nominee account holders to have the same rights as normal shareholders. Lansons formed an umbrella group called The Shareholders’ Alliance, organised a protest group, and tabled an amendment to the Company Law Reform Bill, which was voted in.[17]
