First Protocol business development director Julian Clarke-Jervoise is to leave the agency next month to begin a freelance career in Bahrain.

The London agency has no immediate plans to replace him, with client services director Ed Stanger taking on the majority of his duties.

Clarke-Jervoise said this afternoon that he had "several irons in the fire", including further project work for First Protocol in the Middle East and potential consultancy work on the Royal Bahrain Airshow, scheduled to take place across three days in early 2010.

The latter would link in with First Protocol's long-term relationship with BAE Systems and the Farnborough Airshow.

He added that he was also in talks with a number of other unnamed agencies -including UK companies - with bases in the region following a series of initial meetings in Dubai last month. Clarke-Jervoise will remain at First Protocol part-time until the end of November.

"These are exciting times," Clarke-Jervoise said. "I have had a great time at First Protocol and helped bring some great clients on board. I'll be sorry to leave, but this was too good an opportunity to turn down."
