Gavin Anderson hired to shield FC takeover

The media-shy billionaire attempting to acquire Ipswich Town FC has turned to Gavin Anderson to keep him out of news.

Marcus Evans has called in the City agency to provide a press office function. It will field calls and provide comment on behalf of Evans, who has never given a press interview himself.

Gavin Anderson associate director Michael Turner said: ‘Part of our role is maintaining the low profile of Mr Evans, making sure he’s not being splashed all over the press.’

Private investment from Evans in Ipswich Town is expected to involve the purchase of approximately £32 million of external debt, as well as an additional investment of £12 million through the issue of new shares by the club.

The Gavin Anderson team will be led by global chief executive Richard Constant.
