Y&R's Zea poached by McCann to head group development

The McCann-Erickson UK & Ireland Group has poached Elizabeth Zea

from Young & Rubicam New York to fill the newly created position of

managing partner for group development.

Zea, who leaves a chief of staff position at Y&R, takes responsibility

for driving greater integration of the group's various communications

services. The fusion of McCann UK's different 'corridor companies', such

as the direct operation McCann Relationship Marketing, into a more

effective business machine has been a priority since the creation of the

group at the end of 1999.

'2001 will see a new push for the McCann UK & Ireland Group,' the UK

Group's chairman, Ben Langdon, said. 'Elizabeth will work with me to

take the company to its next level of development.'

Zea has spent nine years at Y&R since joining from Ammirati & Puris' New

York office, spending time as the vice-president of new business, and

senior vice-president account director on AT&T.

Meanwhile, McCann-Erickson Manchester's managing director, Sue Little,

is promoted to chief executive of the agency, replacing Brian Child who,

McCann maintains, will remain in the organisation in an unspecified

network role.
