Opinion: My Best Hire - Alastair Gornall

Alastair Gornall, managing director of AG Knowledge and founder of Consolidated Communications, on Matt Bourn

'We hired Matt at Consolidated in 1997 when he was 24 and he made an immediate impression.

'He went from account executive to account director in three years and worked on a range of challenging accounts in the entertainment and drinks sectors. He was our Employee of the Year 2000 (based on a poll of all his colleagues).

'Matt is very bright - a first class honours degree in media studies - and has a rare combination of strategic vision coupled with creative excellence. He is commercially aware, charming and always has time to help.

'Matt is a perfect example of the type of person the PR consultancy sector now needs to attract in droves.'

Matt Bourn, now MD of The Braben Company.
