Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO’s Peter Souter may appear to be an
unassuming sort at first glance, but the executive creative director’s
persistent rubbing of shoulders with beautiful women has to be more than
just a series of happy coincidences.
Consider the evidence. While waiting for a flight back from Florida,
Souter ’noticed a fantastically beautiful woman floating around’, who
turned out to be none other than the Amazonian Antipodean, Elle ’the
