Zane Radcliffe to leave Newhaven

The agency would soon follow this up with a place on the Scottish Executive’s (now Government) marketing services roster, and win The Bank of Scotland’s advertising account too.

Radcliffe has is also a published author, penning titles London Irish, Big Jessie, The Killer’s Guide to Iceland.

At the time of writing, neither party was able to comment due to legalities over the deal yet to be finalised.
