LONDON, March 7—Neil Bennett, the City editor of the Sunday Telegraph, has quit his job to join international public relations firm Gavin Anderson & Company as chief executive of its U.K. operations. Bennett had been in charge of the financial section of the paper since 1995 and The Guardian reported that he was one of the highest-paid City journalists in London.
 
At the same time, the firm has restructured its European operations, naming Frankfurt office CEO Michael Kruesmann head of Europe. The other four European offices—including London under Bennett—will report to Kruesmann.
 
According to Richard Constant, CEO of Gavin Anderson Worldwide, “Neil is one of the UK’s leading financial and business writers with a reputation for hard-hitting commentary and incisive analysis. In our role as adviser to many leading UK and international corporations we have had a great deal of contact with Neil throughout his career as a journalist.
 
“His deep experience of business, financial and political issues will be of great value to both current and potential clients of the Gavin Anderson Group.”
 
Howard Lee, chairman of the London office, will lead the firm’s European capital markets group, while the European public affairs group will be led by Nick Andrews, who also acts as CEO of the Brussels office.
 
Says Constant, “In recent years, Gavin Anderson & Company has established a strong footprint in Europe. The new European structure cements this process and ensures that our offices in London, Paris, Frankfurt, Brussels and Madrid provide clients with the most comprehensive and seamless service across Europe, as compared with any other specialist firm competing in our segment.”
