Robertson, who had also previously worked at BMP, GGT and Bartle Bogle Hegart, died suddenly on Monday.

Jan Gooding, the chair of Pamco, said: “Charlie was a warm, clever and funny man and, looking back on it, a more thoughtful feminist and sponsor of women than anyone else I met in advertising at the time. When we co-chaired IPA Stage Two together, he was so astonished by the size of his bathroom, he held a Champagne drinks party in it for all the tutors.

“He fuelled creativity and lateral thinking through his deft humanity, rigorous thinking and light touch.”
