Ammirati Puris Lintas has appointed two senior board account directors to run its Rover, BT and PricewaterhouseCoopers accounts.

Ammirati Puris Lintas has appointed two senior board account

directors to run its Rover, BT and PricewaterhouseCoopers accounts.



Steve Cooper will run the agency’s Rover business. He joins from the

sister Interpublic agency, Lowe Howard-Spink, where he was a board

account director on Hanson, Littlewoods, the COI and Imperial Tobacco.

He was also the general manager of Lowe & Partners, where he developed

the group’s integrated offer through the launch of Lowe Direct and the

acquisition of Interfocus.



Cooper replaces Mark Cadman, who was promoted to client services

director at the beginning of this year.



Meanwhile, Deborah Hill has moved from Interfocus, where she was the

business development director, to run the BT and PricewaterhouseCoopers

accounts. Hill has worked at APL before: she was a board account

director on the Interflora and Compaq accounts before she moved to

Interfocus about a year ago.



On PricewaterhouseCoopers, she replaces Paul Gordon who left the agency

in March to join Camp Chipperfield Hill Murray as managing director. APL

won a place on the BT business-to-business roster in February.



Chris Thomas, APL’s chief executive, said: ’It’s about making sure we

have very, very senior and experienced account handlers to head up key

pieces of business. Steve brings experience and maturity to our account

management line-up. Deborah has a proven track record at APL. We are

delighted that she is returning to the fold.’
