Tim Trotter, founder of Ludgate Group, is taking a back seat in the

company and will also leave the board of Ludgate’s parent PR company

Weber PR Worldwide.



His decision comes a year after the Ludgate Group was bought by

McCann-Erickson for an estimated pounds 10.5 million. It was then

integrated into Weber with Trotter operating as deputy chairman of Weber

under chairman Larry Weber.



Trotter is also chief executive of the Ludgate Group which has offices

in London, New York, Frankfurt and Hong Kong. But from 1 May he becomes

non-executive chairman of Ludgate Group.



This is his first move toward leaving the agency he formed in 1991

following a buyout of the PR division of advertising agency Hill

Murray.



He said: ’In the short term I will be considering other non-executive

positions and may look outside the communications world.’



Trotter has a reputation as an operator with first class City

contacts.



He has built Ludgate from a London-based agency with fee income of

pounds 1.2 million in 1991 into a group with worldwide fee income of

around pounds 12 million and 150 staff.
