Gillian Pattison, a director of Shandwick Consultants, has been
forced out of the agency. Pattison is suspended on full pay until the
end of January when her contract will be terminated. Colin Trusler,
group operations director, said: ’We asked her to leave and the terms
were agreed by mutual consent’. Pattison has yet to announce her future
plans but it is thought she has had offers from several rival agencies.
Neither party would comment on the reasons for Pattison’s departure.
