The Hogarth Partnership has appointed Andrew Jaques from global
investment bank Credit Suisse First Boston as its first external partner
since it formed three years ago.
Jaques joins Hogarth from his previous position as vice-president of
CSFB’s UK equity capital markets division. He takes up his new post as
partner and director of the company, starting mid-June.
Hogarth was created in 1997 after five directors decided to break away
from Shandwick’s financial PR operation. Since then the agency has grown
to become an 18-strong operation. The consultancy predicts that fee
income this year will reach an estimated pounds 2 million.
It has a retained client list of over 30, including Burmah Castrol,
Future Network plc, and CVC Capital Partners.
The Hogarth board of directors is planning to expand further by
appointing additional partners in the near future.
Hogarth director John Olsen said: ’The only way we can grow is by
building up our team at director level and in due course we will be
taking on new partners.
’The only real constraint for us is finding the right people, and as
soon they become available we will look at them,’ he added.
Jaques, who left CSFB last week, has worked alongside Hogarth in the
past, advising clients such as Burmah Castrol and Albright and
He has over 12 years experience of investment banking and has also
worked for BZW and HSBC James Capel.
’I am joining at the perfect time to participate in the implementation
of their next stage of growth,’ he said.
