Carat Edinburgh co-founder Stuart Feather leaves agency after 20 years

Stuart Feather, co-founder of Carat Edinburgh, formerly Feather Brooksbank, the Aegis owned media planning and buying company, has left the company.

At the time of writing little information was available, but it is understood that his final day was yesterday (Friday 18 November) and that co-founder Giles Brooksbank remains with the agency.

Last month, Aegis announced that Feather Brooksbank would rebrand as Carat Edinburgh in November, with the Manchester office of Feather Brooksbank merging with Carat Manchester and Edinburgh – with the account team moving to Carat Manchester.

However the recruitment arm of the business retained the Feather Brooksbank moniker.

Under the move, Carat Edinburgh now reported to Tracy De Groose, managing director of Carat UK.

Feather and Brooksbank launched the agency in 1991, and then sold it to Aegis for a sum of £7.5m in 1999. Their earn-out period expired in 2003, although both remained to run the offices in Edinburgh and Manchester.

No one from Aegis or Carat had responded to The Drum’s enquiries for further information at the time of writing although sources close to the company had confirmed Feather's departure.
