Mike Gilmour, one of Britain’s best-known commercials producers, has

resigned as the managing director of James Garrett and Partners to

launch a UK start-up for one of the leading US production consultants,

Bird Bonette and Stauderman.



Gilmour, who leaves Garretts at the end of April, will be succeeded by

Gerald Berman, who arrived from South Africa ten years ago.



James Garrett, the company’s founder, commented: ‘Mike is leaving behind

not just effective attitudes and systems but a team of people,

particularly directors and producers, who are committed and relevant to

the evolving needs of the commercials production business.’



Gilmour said: ‘The ethos of BBS’s consultancy is an early involvement in

the total production process, a relentless quest for value, working

alongside both agencies and production companies in a debate on the key

production issues. It is a service that does not really exist here in

the UK. But from early May it will.’
