Career highlights

This is not a career. It is an accident.

Favourite TV programme

House (for his man-management skills), The Wire (it is an excellent representation of working in newspapers).


The Daily Mail and The Mail on Sunday... unsurprisingly.


The Economist.

Website again, unsurprisingly.

Favourite recent marketing campaign

The Meerkat is entertaining, and anything with Buddy Holly in it.

Favourite brand

See newspaper above. It also pays my salary.

What’s your concession to the recession?

Cheap wine.

Who would play you in a movie?

Jack Nicholson... but he'd need to put on more weight and lose some hair.

Party trick

Never tell anyone your party trick and only do it in private otherwise it won't work.


Staying married, skiing, fine wine, and a bit of shooting and fishing.

What gadget do you think should be invented?

Facial recognition software that can instantly tell me who I am talking to and where and when I insulted them when we last met.

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

\"Darling, please try and find a way of getting the wine to me within 15 years. After that throw a party and drink it or sell it.\"


The irrepressible Zitter, now the MD of a merged Mail and Mail on Sunday structure, had a wheeze a few months back. He recruited a new sales Johnny to talk to agencies. His name? Lord Rothermere. It was good for all concerned, Zitter said, that his nibs got the chance to meet people \"further down the food chain\".


London 1954.
