Lowdown

A tumultuous year for \"Bammo\" which saw him do his bit for charity when he took on the Nabs role. His warnings about a \"tough year\" for advertising and those who found themselves out of work became personally relevant when Viacom Brand Solutions, which he had built into the most creative force in TV sales, was wound down following a deal between MTV and Sky that saw Sky takeover MTV's ad sales, leaving Bampton to consider his options.

Born

14 July 1969, Taplow, Bucks.
