Tributes after well-known PR man dies; APRIL.

AWELL?KNOWN Birmingham public relations specialist, who was one of the founders of City 2000, the forerunner of current-day professional services group Birmingham Forward, has died aged 77.

Ian Hunter, who lived at Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield, was, before his retirement in June 2000, a leading financial public relations specialist in the city and a founderdirector of Citigate Dewe Rogerson (CDR), now part of Huntsworth, the London-headquartered global communications group.

Before that, he was a director with Streets Financial PR and St James's Advertising & Publishing Group, having also established their regional offices during his time with them.

John James, a former chairman and chief executive of City 2000, who was a founder-member of the organisation alongside Mr Hunter, said: "Ian was a bright, intelligent, and fun man."
