Eidos UK drops all internal PR

Just in. Eidos UK has just confirmed that the firm will have no internal PR at all from this point on. The company’s PR aspects are now to be handled by UK agency Barrington Harvey.

“For the time being, there will be no internal PR function; the agencies will be managed by the UK marketing team,” Gareth Ramsay, international PR manager, told VG247 this morning.

In a previous, broadly distributed note, Ramsay said, speaking of himself and PR exec Rachael Grant, “While both of us will remain at the company, the internal restructure will mean that we will move from the PR department to exciting new opportunities.”

The news comes after parent company SCi announced a 25 percent staff lay-off, relocation to Canada and major restructuring in February.

Good luck to you both, chaps.
