'Phoebe came well recommended by previous colleagues, so the interview process didn't take long. She had a powerful CV, a positive attitude consistent with her American roots and obvious ambition.
'She joined in 1998 as team assistant and moved into client handling, where her interest in business and politics and a bright self-confidence established her quickly. When we sold the business to Financial Dynamics five years ago she took the move to Big Agency in her stride.
'Her growing interest in finance meant Phoebe's career took an unexpected turn a couple of years later, when she swam against the PR tide and became a successful journalist.'
Phoebe Davison is now a journalist and fund analyst for financial website Morningstar UK.
