Leagas Delaney has poached Bartle Bogle Hegarty’s head of creative

services, Jim Hubbard, to be its creative services director.



Hubbard had been at BBH for nine years and was a board member for six.



In his new role, Hubbard’s objective will be to create a more proactive

creative department so that projects are managed with greater speed and

cost-effectiveness. He also will be responsible for managing the

agency’s traffic, production and information technology departments.

These departments were previously run separately.



Hubbard has been brought in to give the agency’s creative services a

fresh approach and improved co-ordination. He will help the functions to

evolve and will shortly recruit three new people to work in the traffic

department.



Hubbard said: ‘This is a unique opportunity because I am setting up

something from scratch, but doing it in a well-established agency with a

top creative reputation.’



Leagas Delaney has also appointed a new head of art, Dave Dye. Dye has

been at the agency for two-and-a-half years. As a partner of the

copywriter, Sean Doyle, he has worked on campaigns for Adidas, Hyundai,

Porsche and the Guardian.



Before joining Leagas Delaney, Dye worked at Simons Palmer Denton

Clemmow and Johnson on accounts such as Nike and News International. He

has also worked at Edwards Martin Thornton and Publicis.



Dye commented: ‘It is very flattering to follow in the footsteps of

people such as Steve Dunn, who is now head of art at Lowe Howard-Spink.

I have no broad manifesto for my new role, I just want to carry on the

tradition of good art direction at this agency.’
