The double act at the helm of the UK’s biggest lobbying consultancy is coming to an end.
Bell Pottinger Public Affairs duo Peter Bingle and David Sowells – the ‘Morecambe and Wise’ of the public affairs world – are to split up.
As I reveal in the latest PR Week, Sowells is to take up a new role working for Bell Pottinger USA.
Sowells was promoted to be MD of Bell Pottinger in 2007 – around the same time that Bingle was made chairman.The big question is: which of these candidates will agency owner Lord Bell now promote in to the UK hotseat?
The jockeying for position starts now…
