'Alexandra's appointment to Dewe Rogerson in early 1998 was significant because it successfully marked the completion of our plan to re-energise the UK financial PR division.
'We had recruited three senior advisers and were looking for a bright, enthusiastic and hard-working senior executive to complete the team. Alexandra shone out from the rest of the candidates.
'She worked way above and beyond the call of client duty, was totally professional and always saw the best in people.
'The greatest accolade, in what was a very demanding environment, was that she was first choice to join senior pitch teams.'
Alexandra Buxton is now V-P of the media relations team at JP Morgan.
