Canna Kendall, London’s best-known advertising headhunter, has launched

a new company just weeks after her acrimonious departure from the

business she co-founded, Kendall Tarrant (Campaign, 22 March).



The new venture, called Canna Kendall and Co, will operate from the same

premises in Charlotte Street from which Kendall and her partner, Freddie

Tarrant, first built up Kendall Tarrant in the 70s.



Kendall will continue to work with agencies at senior management level

and will once again focus on creatives, both senior and junior. She said

she believed that the industry was not currently especially well served

at junior creative level.



To help her with the selection of junior creatves, Kendall has hired

Beverley Parker, who is best-known in the London community as previously

being the awards director at D&AD.



Kendall said: ‘The support I have received has been amazing. What has

been so heartening is that everyone has said that this is a fantastic

opportunity for me. I not only feel supported, but massively encouraged.

My greatest love is working with creative people and this gives me a

great chance to offer them a personal service again.’



Kendall has now severed all previous links with Kendall Tarrant. This

will continue to be run, however, by the chief executive, Gay Haines,

who was brought in by Kendall to help revitalise the company.
