Howard-Spink, who has been working at Lowe Howard-Spink (now Lowe Lintas
& Partners) as a part-time consultant for the past five years, wants

Lowe said: ’I thank Geoff for helping me start the agency in 1981. I

Tesco, and earlier on Lloyds Bank. He was also involved in pushing
Lowe’s presence in Asia Pacific. He was chairman of the London agency
from the mid-80s until 1993, when he became strategic planning director
of the Lowe Group.
He said: ’I’ve been lucky to work with some memorable people at BMP and
CDP and especially with Frank at Lowes.’
