Skies 141, has resigned along with his managing director, Andrew
Annette, and his client services director, Olly Raeburn.

executive, and John O’Sullivan, the creative director, were made
At least three other staff, including the creative services director,
Derek Whitehead, have quit in the past week.

catalyst (Campaign, 23 April). The Blue Skies boss, Graham Green, was
installed as group vice-chairman with board-level responsibility for
Blue Skies 141, Bates Communications and Bates Interactive.
Bates Communications’ chairman, Marcus Evans, and its planning director,
Jeremy Hall, resigned immediately.
