2009 will go down as the hardest year in Fennell's career. Not only has the agency been dogged by talk that its big accounts are about to walk, but some significant cuts in client spend also led to the agency making 40 staff redundant. As the driver behind major structural change at the agency, Fennell's hands-on bosses will have now have their eyes firmly on the effect his ideas are having on the bottom line. Few doubt he's up to the challenge.
