ICCO to induct Lord Bell into Hall of Fame

The International Communications Consultancy Organisation (ICCO) will induct Lord Tim Bell into the ICCO Hall of Fame this evening.

Lord Tim Bell

Bell, who is known for his advisory role in Margaret Thatcher’s three successful general election campaigns, launched Lowe Bell Communications in 1989, and became chairman of Chime Communications – which included the Bell Pottinger Group – in 1994.

Lord Bell resigned as chairman of Bell Pottinger in August 2016.

The ICCO Hall of Fame was established in 2003 at the ICCO Global Summit in Berlin. It recognises those who have contributed to the internationalisation of the PR industry.

Francis Ingham, chief executive at ICCO, said: “Tim Bell created modern PR. He elevated our work from the peripheral to the very heart of every organisation’s endeavours. So we are incredibly proud that he today joins the ICCO Hall of Fame.”

last year, Karen Van Gergen, CEO at Omnicom Public Relations Group; Jack Martin, global chairman and CEO at Hill+Knowlton Strategies and David Gallagher, president, growth and development at International Omnicom Public Relations Group, were inducted into the Hall of Fame.

The awards will take place this  evening (13 April 2017) at the Ellwood Atfield Gallery. PRCA members and partners are welcome to attend.
