Angela Green, chairman of Lowe Bell subsidiary Green Moon, has quit the

agency following a lengthy sabbatical.



Green started the consumer specialist with Tricia Moon in 1982 and

helped to build it into a pounds 1.75 million a year business before

selling out to Lowe Bell parent Chime Communications in 1994 for pounds

1.1 million. She leaves officially at the end of the year.



Lowe Bell chairman Sir Tim Bell said Green had been on sabbatical for

some months ‘dealing with a private and personal issue’ and had decided

not to return. He added: ‘We are very sorry that she is leaving but

completely understand her reasons.’



To help fill the gap Green Moon has hired the head of cosmetic giant

L’Oreal’s public relations team. Anne Klahn. She takes up the post of

joint deputy managing director, alongside Suzanne Woolf, in January.



Klahn has been director of L’Oreal’s PR since 1992. She joined the

company as PR manager in 1985 to set up the PR department, following

nine years at Attenborough Associates. She first met Green Moon managing

director Tricia Moon as a marketing and PR trainee at the Gala Cosmetic

Group.



At L’Oreal, Klahn managed the launches of Studio Line, L’Oreal

Plenitude, L’Oreal Perfection, Legendary Harley-Davidson, Synergie and

Nutralia. She was also involved in a PR campaign for the company’s

Laboratoires Garnier division.



She described her 11 years at L’Oreal as ‘exciting and stimulating’.

However, she said joining Green Moon would give her ‘a new stimulus’.



Jean-Jacques Lebel, managing director of L’Oreal UK, commented: ‘We are

very sad to see Anne leave L’Oreal. She has done an excellent job and

has been instrumental in developing and managing numerous projects, both

on a brand and a corporate level.’
