It’s not all plain sailing for celebs in love: look at Brad and
Gwyneth, Naomi and Joaquin, Adrian and Katerina. Adrian and
PR stars of course.
Like Pitt and Paltrow, Adrian Wheeler, managing director of GCI London,
suffers long separations from his betrothed, the very lovely Katerina
Koudelova, executive director of GCI Prague. Wheeler, who ties the knot
next month, says that BT and Czech Airlines have been making something
of a killing.
Despite the pressures, Wheeler says that, unlike certain supermodels,
neither he or Katerina have had trouble with antibiotics. Their
’When you are only together for two days a week, you have to make the
most of all your time together.’
Caroline Thomas, who sold her fashion PR outfit Caroline Thomas
Publicity to GCI in 1991, also suggests that having two partners in
successful PR careers is not all glamour.
Thomas - whose husband Christopher Broadbent, Ansdell Group chairman,
started his company in her office basement - says: ’We were two stressed
people with a young baby and something had to go - and we wanted to hang
on to the baby.’
She is now a freelance consultant - outside PR.
