Deborah Pullen, a group board account director at RPM3, has left

the agency to take on the new role of client services director at Court

Burkitt & Company.



As well as heading up account management, Pullen will work on some of

CBC’s major clients, including UDV. She will also contribute to the

agency’s new-business, recruitment and training efforts.



She said: ’I will be looking coherently at the whole account management

department and putting together a structure that will benefit the agency

internally and externally.’



Pullen’s experience includes stints at J. Walter Thompson, Ogilvy &

Mather, Waldren Allen, Publicis and Cowan Kemsley Taylor, which she

joined three years ago. CKT merged with Butler Lutos Sutton Wilkinson

last year to form RPM3.



During her career, Pullen has worked with blue-chip clients such as

Brooke Bond, Oxo, St Ivel, Rowntree and Boots. While at CKT, Pullen was

responsible for the majority of its major clients, including Cow & Gate,

Bellway Homes, Brintons Carpets and Pontins.



’I was going to leave before the merger, but I stayed on to see what

happened. I decided it was not a place I wanted to stay at,’ Pullen

added.



’CBC is a good place to be with a fantastic reputation and an excellent

reel.’



Hugh Burkitt, the chairman of CBC, created a role for Pullen after they

met and decided to work together. Her arrival frees Julian Calderara,

the managing director, to spend more time on new business. Calderara was

joint managing director of the agency with Lionel Knight until Knight

left earlier this year.
