With 27 years of experience in PR, Bob really is an industry expert. Having worked both in-house (for companies such as Grants of St James’s) and for agencies (including Kingsway PR, which became part of Saatchi and Saatchi), he has devised and implemented a wide range of PR campaigns for a variety of clients from Nestlé to Tarmac.
In 1990 Bob founded Nielsen McAllister, since which time he has established many excellent contacts across a number of sectors and is well respected by the packaging and associated media. He has built the company on the foundation of great working relationships and is proud of the fact that he retains his first two clients to this day.
Outside of the office Bob has previously been known to enjoy treading the boards in AmDram, but since putting away the greasepaint he has taken up squash and golf – albeit rather badly.
