CAMPAIGN DIARY: Yet another Bates story

There is just too much guff about Bates UK going to the dogs these days. Every time Bates’s worldwide chairman, Michael Bungey, picks up Campaign, there is yet another headline screaming about turmoil in London.

There is just too much guff about Bates UK going to the dogs these

days. Every time Bates’s worldwide chairman, Michael Bungey, picks up

Campaign, there is yet another headline screaming about turmoil in

London.



Sadly, it is impossible to ignore the fact that he has bid ciao to

rather a lot of senior executives lately - Paul Twivy, Tim Ashton,

Marcus Evans, Peter Crossing, Jay Pond-Jones and Graham Hinton.



But rather than have to decide how to write about Bates this week, we

are offering a fully interactive Bates diary story.



Simply delete the phrases as appropriate.



Following the sacking of Graham Hinton last week, Bungey’s attention is

now likely to turn to Caroline Biggane on reception/Pat O’Halloran, the

odd job man/Graham Green, personally hired by Hinton to turn Bates into

a single integrated agency.



And what about Hinton’s departure? Was it all to do with spending days

away from the agency on Institute of Practitioners in Advertising

business/reorganising the agency to be a through-the-line, totally

integrated, media neutral thingy/that awful haircut?
