Mass marketing

News reaches Tulkinghorn that Addleshaws’ new PR chap in London Mark Morley used to perform similar duties for the Catholic church in the UK.

An Addleshaws source confirmed that Morley – who starts today (11 December) – was with the church at the time of Pope John Paul II’s death. “That was his biggest story,” said the mole.

As seasoned market watchers will be aware, the wife of Addleshaws managing partner Mark Jones has an even more high-profile, cloth-related role – she’s a vicar. Does Morley’s arrival signal the start of an ecclesiastical practice at the firm? Advocacy at Addleshaws could take on a whole new meaning.
