Diary: Intrigue surrounds 'PR mega-chick'

Do bosses at Ogilvy PR Worldwide know what they've let themselves in for by hiring Philly Jones, their new UK healthcare boss?

The former Ruder Finn healthcare specialist is a 'PR mega-chick' - or at least that's what's suggested by her AOL email address.

Jones, who starts work at Canary Wharf next month and has just relocated to London from New York, says: 'I got the address back in 1997 when I moved to the US - Ruder Finn wasn't set up for remote email access.

'Every male client who dodged emails over the weekend would open them from my personal account,' she adds, justifying her continued use of the address.

But what precisely is a PR mega-chick? 'Everyone always thinks there's a connotation - but there isn't,' she says.

If she lays some new-business eggs, all will be happy, we're sure.
