While media men are normally as happy behind a filing cabinet with

their pants down as they are wielding a niblick on a golf course, most

at least try to decorously conceal their shenanigans from the press.



Not so Adam McKay, a 27-year-old media planner from London. In a feature

hands off each other and she invited me back to her flat.’

Unfortunately, word got around and his managing director warned him to

stop attempting to sleep his way to the top.



Although a trawl of the big agencies has drawn a blank as to his true

identity (answers on a postcard), he can’t have been much cop in bed, or

he’d be a chief executive by now.
