The Independent’s business and City news editor, Andrew Cornelius,

is to leave after just eight months in the post to become a director at

Citigate Dewe Rogerson.



Cornelius worked for Dewe Rogerson for two years, before its merger with

Citigate late last year. In his new post as one of the firm’s 14

directors, he will report to Citigate Dewe Rogerson managing director,

Jonathan Clare.



Cornelius will handle financial PR. Clients on Citigate’s books include

Olivetti and French banks Paribas and Societe Generale.



While at Dewe Rogerson, Cornelius worked on deals including the merger

of Quicksave and Somerfield and the proposed deal linking BT and

AT&T.



He brings with him 20 years’ experience in city journalism across most

of the broadsheet newspapers, including the Daily Telegraph, London’s

Evening Standard and the Guardian.



Cornelius said: ’With the merger, Citigate Dewe Rogerson has become a

very powerful operation. It’s a fantastic opportunity.’ He added that he

had not yet negotiated his start date. Cornelius announced his move last

week and the Independent has not yet decided on his replacement.
