Exec was group finance director of TVF

BERLIN — John Stannard has become a partner in DDA Public Relations and chief financial officer of DDA Event Management.

Stannard was previously group finance director of media group TVF.

The other partners at DDA are Lawrence Atkinson, Chris Paton and chairman and founder Dennis Davidson.

“As Dennis focuses more on his international producer’s representation role, I will gradually take over the day-to-day management of the PR operations. As such, we both felt that I needed a strong financially orientated partner to work alongside me.” Atkinson said.
