Lobbying and communications agency PLMR is set to open an office in Scotland next month after hiring an aide to the Scottish Labour party to lead the venture.
Lynn McMath, currently press advisor for the Scottish shadow cabinet, is to head up the PLMR Scotland office as senior manager.
McMath said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for Scottish politics and public affairs. PLMR Scotland will be here on the ground and ready to make the most of it.”
PLMR was established in 2006 and named Public Affairs News Consultancy of the Year in 2013.
Speaking on the development PLMR Founder Kevin Craig said: “Whether it is ‘devo-max’ or full independence, the Scottish Government will be given a considerable amount more power after the referendum. In order to continue providing our clients with the best possible service, it is absolutely essential that we have a presence in Edinburgh.”
