Mark Smith takes top job at Bell Pottinger

Mark Smith, currently chief operating officer at Chime Group Holdings, is moving to public relations consultancy Bell Pottinger Private to take on the executive role of chairman and managing partner.

Smith, a chartered accountant, already holds the post of non-executive chairman at Bell Pottinger in which Chime has retained a minority 24.4% shareholding since divesting control in 2012  (see Bell Pottinger’s partners get bigger slice of profit). He will take up his new role at the end of February.
