Lowdown

Now the holder of the award for "Most Meteoric Rise in Adland" after moving from being the new business director of Bartle Bogle Hegarty to the chief executive of Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R in the space of about eight weeks. Not only is he finding his feet in the agency, but also in how to run it. He has a long way to go to sway the opinions of his doubters, but has some strong guiding hands in the shape of Mark Roalfe and Alison Hoad.

Most expensive purchase

Holidays.

Why are you good at what you do?

I talk a lot, I listen more.
