This month, Surrey-based PR and sports sponsorship agency Craigie

Taylor started work for a new client, footwear and clothing company

Rockport.



The agency is supporting Rockport’s current advertising campaign, which

features former Scottish rugby international Gavin Hastings.



Hastings is one of four celebrities appearing in the national

advertising campaign publicising Rockport’s spring/ summer 1999

collection.



Hastings seems to be very comfortable changing his game. First a rugby

legend, now a model. And Hastings has a third string to his bow.



Quite by coincidence, he also happens to head Craigie Taylors’

Edinburgh-based sister agency Craigie Hastings, launched in May this

year.



Vicky Stacey, who is heading the Rockport account at Craigie Taylor, is

at pains to point out there is no link between their winning the client

and Hastings’ two year-old relationship with Rockport. And Craigie

Hastings staff will not be working on the account.



’It’s an amazing coincidence. I have, through various sailing events,

worked alongside Rockport for several years and have got to know the

company,’ said Stacey.
