Bell Pottinger deserted by clients

Chief Correspondent

Clients, shareholders and investors are deserting PR giant Bell Pottinger as the scandal surrounding a campaign it mounted in South Africa gathers pace. Bell Pottinger was expelled from the PR industry’s trade body last night. That followed the resignation of chief executive James Henderson on Sunday in the wake of the company’s own internal investigation into its PR campaign, which has been criticised for being racist and anti-white.
