DIARY: Name-change at HMC triggers speculation as to 'M' replacement

What's in a name? Quite a lot for staff at Hobsbawm Macaulay


The agency is on the verge of changing its name months after its

co-founder, chancellor Gordon Brown's wife Sarah Macaulay, moved on to

join Brunswick's arts division.

HMC sources say the initials will remain unchanged but the Macaulay name

is likely to be replaced, possibly by 'Media'.

Or perhaps 'Migration', as the news emerges that three other HMC staff

have joined Macaulay at Brunswick.

Helen Scott-Lidgett, who left HMC at the end of last year, is now

heading the arts division. Assisting her is former HMC senior arts

manager Ben Rawlinson, who was one of six staff made redundant last

year. Covering for Macaulay until she takes her post is another ex-HMC

hand, Gil McNeil.

A decision on the new name is expected in the spring.
