Diary: F-H finds strange bedfellows in its offices on Northumberland Avenue.

It’s not what you do it’s where you do it, as Fishburn-Hedges might concur.

Managing director John Williams tells me F-H’s acquaintance with hi-tech

shop Hunt Thompson, which led to their joint capture of the lucrative

NCR account, has its roots in their mutual occupancy of the same

building.



It seems that, having seen Hunt Thompson’s Gareth Thompson around F-H’s

Northumberland Avenue office block, planning director Marc Moninski

bumped into him on his train journey home. They began chatting,

relationships developed between F-H and Hunt Thompson - which has just

been acquired by Citigate - and the rest is pounds 200,000-fee

history.



Despite the success of this home-grown partnership, Williams tells me

that, in regard to one new Northumberland Avenue tenant - Guinness

fraudster and recovered dementia sufferer Ernest Saunders - it is not

likely to be repeated.



Williams says: ’I’ve seen him in the building a couple of times. He

always looks very healthy. It was great serendipity with Hunt Thompson,

but in Saunders’ case I can’t quite imagine a possible area of alliance.

We don’t have a beer account though ...’
