DIARY: Foster-Browns find that secret of happiness lies in working separately

Tanya Foster-Brown, PR head at Royal jewellers Asprey and Garrard, is heading for the door after spending more than nine glittering years with the upmarket firm.

Tanya Foster-Brown, PR head at Royal jewellers Asprey and Garrard,

is heading for the door after spending more than nine glittering years

with the upmarket firm.



Why? Because husband Gary Salter is joining the company as MD in October

following a spell in the equivalent post at champagne producer Laurent

Perrier.



A colleague of Foster-Brown said that after eight years of marriage, the

couple decided that being co-workers would push the idea of

’togetherness’ a little too far. She will depart around Christmas and at

the moment has no plans other than spending time with her children, and

her husband - but only in the evening.



Salter replaces Ian Dahl, who is now CEO of jeweller Signet - previously

Ratner.



Given Foster-Brown’s predilection for working for rather grand

operations - before joining Asprey and Garrard, she worked in promotions

at Tatler - it is unlikely she will follow Dahl to Signet.



Even several years after Gerald Ratner famously said his shops sold

cheap rubbish, the stigma remains - a daunting challenge for any PR

head.
