Financial PR Henry Gewanter is setting up his own public relations firm – Positive Profile – after quitting Financial Dynamics after nearly five years at the company.
Gewanter, a former investment banker and New York taxi driver, takes around 15 clients with him, including Imro, Premier Asset Management and ABN Amro Hoare Govett.
Gewanter was formerly head of Financial Dynamics, the financial services division, which he founded in 1993.
He says: "My new firm, Positive Profile, will be a leading player in fast growth areas such as the financial services sector, including action in the consolidation trend among investment trusts."
Other clients Gewanter worked for while at Financial Dynamics included the PIA Ombudsman Bureau, Century Life, Ivory & Sime, Baronsmead and Close Brothers.
