Much has been written about Christine Walker of late. But last week The Mirror newspaper championed her as a member of the real “girl power” elite. Under the headline the “Future is Ours” it showcased Walker and two other “powerful” women – one of them Carol Reay at Mellors Reay & Partners.
The article spoke of Walker’s new joint venture with M&C Saatchi – Walker Media – and her fall out with ex-bosses at Zenith, suggesting her departure had been a catastrophe. However, it failed to mention that Zenith had pursued Walker into the courts to protect its hold on clients – one of whom is Mirror Group Newspapers. And of course the creative account for Mirror Group is handled by M&C Saatchi.
