Diary: The man who put the ’bank’ into Brocklebank

As reported two weeks ago, Simon Brocklebank-Fowler, Citigate Communications’ chief executive, is on gardening leave as he negotiates a departure from the agency.

As reported two weeks ago, Simon Brocklebank-Fowler, Citigate

Communications’ chief executive, is on gardening leave as he negotiates

a departure from the agency.



He’s had a colourful couple of years at the agency, pulling in some top

corporate accounts, such as the Millennium Commission and Coopers and

Lybrand while at the same time, according to some Citigate sources,

falling out with other agency top brass.



Brocklebank-Fowler himself won’t comment on his departure but I’ve heard

that it was linked to the talks with rival firm Dewe Rogerson. In the

jostling for top positions it is rumoured that he was set to lose

out.



However, while Brocklebank-Fowler’s next move remains unclear, whoever

takes him on will have to shell out a king’s ransom.



My misinformed rivals on Sunday Business have reported he was looking

for a new post which would equal the pounds 120,000 he is earning at

Citigate.



In fact, he was pulling in an incredible pounds 200,000 a year, pounds

250,000 including share options.



It might have to be a return to investment banking for the

ex-Rothschild’s man.
