Lowdown

After years at the helm of Tequila, Bonnet has extended his remit to include the top job at the troubled digital shop Agency.com. It's an interim post initially, but Bonnet will be hoping to turn it into a permanent one. Despite having the best name in town, the digital agency has been struggling for a while, so Bonnet could earn his digital stripes if he turns it around.

Born

Bit of a devil really, all the 6s. Shropshire is my place of birth.
