Damien has joined a PR firm called Influence Associates, who have worked with - among others - Haymarket, Autoweek, Top Gear and Goodwood. I guess he was probably headhunted for his previous experience at Autosport and with the recent sale of that and various other bits of Haymarket - including the exhibitions side, for which they already act - I can see there could be a lot of opportunities for them to grow ...
There's probably a lot more money in PR than magazine editing too!
Thanks. Best of luck to both Smith and Trott.
Charlieman.....I don't quite understand your final comment. Am I missing something?
