It’s an accolade…

It’s an accolade the Diary can only dream of but Vanessa Hogg, new business director of marketing communications agency Billington Cartmell, is doing her bit for the marketing fraternity by being in the running to be named Britain’s Fittest Director. Although the title is a bit confusing, Vanessa has all the credentials to succeed. Not only is she extraordinarily “fit”, she is also a company director and a successful triathlete. She took Bronze for Great Britain at an event in Honolulu last November and came third in the European championships last month. Vanessa has reached the final ten in the Daily Telegraph competition and should find out if she’s fit enough to take the overall prize this week. The prize – which smacks of taking coals to Newcastle – is a home gym.
