DIARY: Stalwart Felstead hits 40 and out in industry

Working in the ad industry is an exhausting business. Not many manage to stay in the industry to full retirement age, but there are notable exceptions.

One is Roger Felstead, who has managed more than 40 years in advertising, latterly with EHS Brann. In fact, he has outlived most of the agencies he has worked for - London Press Exchange; Dennis & Garland; Offord Youlton; Sears & Nelson; Freeman Matthews & Milne; Butler; Lintas Overseas, and many more.

But now he is retiring and anyone who has crossed paths with him over those 40 years is asked to join him for a drink at the Coach & Horses on Greek Street on 30 May from 7.30pm. Or visit www.rogerfelstead.co.uk to leave a message.

Patrick Collister, the creative director of EHS Brann, says: "Any of Roger's old mates who are still alive are welcome to join us."
