’Any major figure leaving a company is always a disappointment, but there are many able managers at Zenith. This doesn’t change our view of the agency. The new management will want to address the key issues of how to do it better - it all seems to make considerable sense.’ Roger Eastoe, deputy managing director, Mirror Group

’I was surprised to hear she was going. Christine built Zenith from

scratch, but with the personal changes in her life recently, I can

understand why she may want a new challenge. I’m sure she has 1,001

suitors in the European media market.’



Roger Partington, marketing director, Safeway



’There’s a strong association between Kraft and Christine Walker and

we’ll be disappointed not to have her counsel. She’s built a strong team

but it would be silly to pretend we’re not always looking at media

suppliers.’



Barry Spencer, media communications manager, Kraft Jacobs Suchard



’In many ways Zenith is Christine Walker. I’ve got an excellent team at

Zenith, but I’d be foolish not to review the situation very closely now

that she’s going.’



Jim Hytner, marketing director, Sky Television - one of Walker’s closest

clients



’I think Christine’s departure represents a major loss for Zenith.



But I’m confident that the team on our business will continue to operate

at the highest level.’



Peter Buchanan, director of marketing communications, the Central Office

of Information, is currently reviewing all of the COI’s accounts,

including Zenith’s



’There’s no question of us reviewing our business. Christine added a lot

to Zenith in the time she was there, but she’s left in place a very

talented team. The people who run our business are still there and I’m

not anticipating any change. I’ve got a lot of time for Graham Duff and

he knows the business.’



John Kinsey, marketing director, Camelot.
