Taylor, who retired from BPC in 2001, joined Haggie Hepburn this week as chairman.
During a 15-year-long career with BPC, Taylor worked for clients including British Airways, the BBC and Morgan Grenfell. In particular, he advised NM Rothschild on comms as the bank fought successfully to retain its independence following the Big Bang period of City deregulation in 1987.
As head of the then Lowe Bell Communications team in South Africa, Taylor advised FW de Klerk during South Africa’s first free elections in which de Klerk won 20 per cent of the vote and seats in the subsequent Government of National Unity.
Taylor starts work at Haggie this week and will advise clients on comms-led business strategy, strategic brand consultancy and comms audit work.
