People and Business: New chapter

PHILLIP AUGAR, who started his City career as a drinks analyst at the now defunct Fielding Newson Smith in 1978, has just been made a non-executive director of Fuller, Smith & Turner, the brewers.

This should fit comfortably alongside Mr Augar's plans to go and write books. He is currently chairman of securities at Schroders, a department he helped create when he left NatWest Securities four years ago.
