Brenden Pereira has offered to resign from Fox Communications after the public relations firm, envied for the number of lucrative government contracts that have gone its way in such a short time, lost its jewel in the crown Sime Darby.
Shaik Akmal Halayuddin, one of the founders of Fox, has also offered to quit.
Brenden made news after this blogger and Jeff Ooi (now MP for Jelutong) alleged him for plagiarism. He is a close friend of Kalimullah Hassan and politician Khairy Jamaluddin. Brenden quit the NSTP soon after the plagiarism scandal to join Wong Sulong, the former Star editor-in-chief, to form Fox.
Fox was said to be the brainchild of Kali and old pal MoF II, Nor Mohd Yaakob. Its major accounts included Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's various economic corridors.
Over dinner with bloggers two nights ago, Tun Musa Hitam, the Sime Darby chairman, blamed "poor PR" strategy for it losing IJN and Labu. Read Nuraina's Moving on with .. better PR and A. Kadir Jasin's Sime Promises Better PR.
