As the shock news of last week’s fatal shooting of fashion designer
Gianni Versace sped around the world last Tuesday, at Nexus Public
Relations, account manager Lindsay Sexton heard all about it from her
usual source of news - the office postman.
Unfortunately, the rather deaf postie told Sexton that one of the
Saatchi brothers had been shot, leaving her to speculate whether it was
Maurice or Charles who had been killed.
As one of Nexus’s biggest clients is Muller Dairy UK, who use the
brothers’ former agency Saatchi and Saatchi for their advertising,
Sexton was on the point of calling managing director Ken Wood to let him
’Luckily I saw the Evening Standard’s front page before I picked up the
phone’, said a relieved Sexton. ’It’s the last time I believe anything
from that postman!’
