DIRECT NEWS: Jon Ingall quits EHS to launch Havas venture

Jon Ingall, the managing director of the Havas-owned Evans Hunt Scott, is leaving to set up a venture within Havas after ten years with the agency.

Jon Ingall, the managing director of the Havas-owned Evans Hunt

Scott, is leaving to set up a venture within Havas after ten years with

the agency.



Although Havas managers are reluctant to reveal the nature of Ingall’s

new role, in which he will not be involved with EHS, his extensive

experience means it is likely that he will launch an agency operation.

Havas declined to comment as Campaign went to press.



Andrew Harris, the chief executive of EHS, stressed that Ingall’s

departure was amicable and mutual. ’Jon has been here for ten years and

has become completely au fait with the culture of the agency, but he now

wants a fresh challenge,’ he said.



Linda Piggot, the EHS deputy managing director of three years, succeeds

Ingall as managing director. She joined the agency as an account manager

in 1990.



Harris explained that Ingall’s departure would spark a management

reshuffle. He added: ’This is the beginning of a new phase for the

agency as we begin reorganising the planning and account management

sides. EHS is going through an evolution rather than a revolution.’



Ingall succeeded Andy Carolan as the EHS managing director in 1993.

Formerly the client services director and then the deputy managing

director, he has been credited in part for turning the agency around

after its troubled years in the early 90s.



Harris commented: ’Jon has brought enthusiasm and commitment to his role

here and has helped manage our growth over the past three years

superbly.’



EHS’s consistent work on accounts including BMW and British Gas

contributed to it being awarded Campaign Direct’s Agency of the Year

last year.
