Career highlights

Being fired from a summer job en Provence. At Unilever, \"the Lynx effect\" on my now wife. At Mother, Oasis \"for people who don't like water\" and \"trust Boots\". My job at Saint is the best yet.

Favourite TV programme

'Allo 'Allo.

Newspaper

The Guardian.

Magazine

Monocle...but what kind of category extension lunacy led to the creation of Monocle-branded swimming trunks and candles?

Website

Netvibes – it's like driving an automatic.

Favourite recent marketing campaign

The new Stella campaign because I want to live in it.

Favourite brand

Vespa. Makes London the best city in the world.

What’s your concession to the recession?

Carbs.

Who would play you in a movie?

Omar Sharif.

Party trick

Oh dear...the booty dance.

Hobbies

Middle Eastern food. Real British ale. Harmless fibbery.

What gadget do you think should be invented?

Anti-gravitational footwear. (Pre-pubescent dreams of flying live on, I'm afraid.)

You’ve got one last Tweet before you die. What do you Tweet?

\"@saintpeter: one double espresso, a malborough light and a print out of http://tinyurl.com/kvuzk4 please.\"

Lowdown

It's been quite a year for Al-Zaidy, making him a more-than-worthy new addition to the A List line-up. In January, he was promoted to become the managing partner of Saint, and has since kept busy by winning new business from major clients (including Virgin Media and LG), making a number of shrewd appointments to boost the agency's planning department, and becoming a father for the second time.

Born

12 November 1972. Romford, Essex.
