Moritz Hunzinger leaves post at HI

FRANKFURT: Moritz Hunzinger, the controversial adviser and lobbyist whose client list once included Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, has left the top job at Hunzinger Information (HI), the agency he founded in 1979.

Hunzinger took HI public in 1998, but no longer owns shares. In 2000, the PR arm had a turnover of over £3.29m, which dropped to £513,000 last year.

Chairman Bolko Hoffmann, whose Effecten Spiegel owns 40 per cent of HI, joined the board in 2002. Tensions have since mounted over political differences.

Explaining his departure, Hunzinger said: ‘Hoffmann and I cannot work together. Whether I will remain as head of [subsidiaries] Action Press or Hunzinger PR, time will tell.’
