The PC Agency was founded by Sir Richard Branson’s former comms director, Paul Charles, earlier this year, and focuses on promoting travel brands around the world.

The agency acquired hotel PR specialist Angel Publicity in August, with its founder, Emma Cripwell, taking on the role of MD.

Dunn said: “I have seen Paul build a great team in a company with an impressive list of clients – in my experience great clients choose to work with the finest in their sector. There is a clear vision ahead for The PC Agency and I look forward to helping it grow its influence further.”

Charles added: “I’m flattered and humbled that Andrew has chosen to invest in The PC Agency and become non-executive chairman. There is a wide range of companies that he could have chosen to invest in. Andrew has considerable business flair and built one of the most successful and admired tour operators in the travel industry. His business and travel knowledge will be invaluable as we continue to grow in the months and years ahead.”

Other recent changes at The PC Agency include the promotions of Sarah Potter to associate director and Amelia Bird to account director. Leanne Gosford has also joined the agency as senior account manager from Hills Balfour.
