Hatch quits after split at Penrose

Penrose Financial Public Relations founding partner Louise Hatch has left the group following a series of boardroom disagreements.

Hatch was one of four founding partners who launched the business back in 1998 and her clients included Aberdeen Asset Management and Credit Suisse.

Claire Burston, formerly joint head of retail with Hatch, now takes sole responsibility for the team. Hatch is working through her three months gardening leave and her future plans are as yet unknown.

Penrose managing director Gay Collins says: “Following board disagreements, we have agreed that Louise should step away from Penrose to pursue other interests.”
