New venture for Hutchinson

Former Colman Getty PR Mark Hutchinson has launched his own consultancy, Mark Hutchinson Management (MHM), taking high-profile names including J K Rowling with him.

The consultancy will specialise in profile management and arts and entertainment PR, and authors Nigella Lawson and Andrea Levy, with whom Hutchinson had a long working relationship during his 13 years with Colman Getty, have followed him to his new venture.

Hutchinson will also be handling the personal PR for author J K Rowling, sharing it with Scottish-based PR company StonehillSalt. However, PR for Rowling's charity Lumos will remain with Colman Getty.

Hutchinson said he would be continuing to develop a "thoughtful and strategic approach to profile management" for a range of high-profile clients from the worlds of arts and entertainment. "I look forward to announcing a number of exciting new projects in the coming months," he added.
