Former financial journalist turned PR man, Philip Robinson is beating a
retreat. I gather he is leaving The Maitland Consultancy, after just
four months, to return to journalism.
Robinson, who left his job as deputy business and City editor at the
Independent to join Maitland earlier this year, is to join the Daily
Telegraph in an unspecified ‘senior’ role.
Described by industry sources as a ‘well respected and experienced
journalist’ Robinson worked with Telegraph City editor Neil Collins for
a short period after returning to the UK from the US two years ago.
Prior to that he held the City editor’s job at the Daily Express.
Robinson’s change of heart follows that of Jeff Randall, who abandoned
Financial Dynamics for a plum job at his old newspaper the Sunday Times
earlier this year.
