Burson-Marsteller to lose tech supremo Bowman

Burson-Marsteller's head of tech Chantal Bowman is leaving the agency after almost three years, it emerged this week.

The agency is yet to replace Bowman and it is not known whether she has a new job lined up. She is currently serving out a three-month notice period and will leave the London office of the WPP-owned agency in May.

Burson-Marsteller's UK CEO Jonathan Jordan confirmed Bowman's departure, adding that he would be seeking an external replacement.

Following a recent internal restructure, Bowman was named one of nine directors on the UK leadership team, helping to run Burson-Marsteller's corporate division as well as taking responsibility for the agency's tech clients.

She joined Burson-Marsteller from GolinHarris in 2005, having led the rival agency's corporate and technology practice.

Before her six-year stint at GolinHarris, Bowman worked at fellow Interpublic subsidiary Weber Shandwick, where she was associate director for a year.

A qualified barrister, Bowman started her PR career at The Richbell Group, which famously collapsed in the late 1990s.

Bowman failed to return PRWeek's calls.
