Lowe Howard-Spink has promoted Colm Feeney to broadcast director as

its media department prepares to re-open as Western International Media

on Monday.



His elevation from broadcast manager kicks off a reshaping of the TV

department, details of which will be announced within the next two

weeks.



Feeney has effectively been running the department since mid-January,

when Keith Impey, Lowes’ long-serving broadcast director, left to launch

a sports marketing company, the International Sports Group (Campaign, 29

November 1996).



Feeney said: ’We are going to look to build on what we see as our areas

of excellence - media expertise, accountability and continuing our track

record of innovation.’



Mike Smallwood, the chief executive of Western International Media,

commented: ’Colm has been with us since 1989 and knows the broadcast

market inside out. Lowes has always had a tradition of nurturing

home-grown experts.’



Previous ’graduates’ from the Lowes school include Mark Cranmer, now

managing director of Motive; Andy Troullides, the managing director of

MediaCom; Tony Wheeble, the sales director of Flextech TV; and Tony

Manwaring, the managing director of Initiative Media.
