GPC Market Access director of corporate affairs John Gardner has

left the public affairs agency after six years.



Gardner, who is well connected within the Conservative Party, has not

yet decided on his next move.



’I can’t comment except to say that I have left by mutual agreement,’

said Gardner, who quit two weeks ago. He was one of seven directors on

the agency’s London board.



Before joining GPC Market Access he worked as a special adviser to the

then defence secretary Tom King. During his period at the agency Gardner

headed up its defence and research unit.



GPC Market Access director Peter Robinson said that there would be no

direct replacement for Gardner.



’We are looking to make a number of senior appointments in different

areas, which will cover some of the areas John was concerned with,’ said

Robinson.



Gardner’s departure follows that of the agency’s head of local

government and environment, account director Mark Evans, who also had

Conservative Party connections.



He left GPC Market Access with a severance payment at the beginning of

June, just two months after being promoted.



Last Monday Evans resigned from Enfield Borough Council, where he had

been a Conservative chief whip.
