DIARY: The venerable Proctor shows his arty ability

Dominic Proctor, the chief executive of J. Walter Thompson, is a remarkable man. Apart from running the most admirable and venerable agency in town (see Letters, p24), he has a host of other talents - including striking canny deals at JWT’s recent art auction, where 10 per cent of the proceeds went to the Tommy’s Campaign charity.

Spying a fetching canvas called Showtime by Terence Donovan, Proctor did

a deal to knock down the price from its pounds 6,000 ratecard. As they

say, you can take the man out of media, but you can’t take the media out

of the man.
