Summary of the year so far: "We had a ripping start to the year and we’re starting to have some fun as an agency. We won some new clients: Nature Valley, Zurich, London Live, Harrods and a place on the much coveted Government roster. We were also pleased to pick up a Yellow Pencil at the D&AD awards for our LOCOG Games Makers campaign, and a REV award for our work on X-box. Former ECD’s Rob Doubal and Lolly Thomson were promoted to Co-Presidents of the agency and Zaid Al-Zaidy was brought in from TBWA as the new Chief Strategic Officer to join Copas and Manzoor on the management team. We also hired some great new Creative heads: Sanjiv Mistry & Jamie Mietz and Mark McCall & Rich Dorey, to help us on our mission. There’s a good vibe in the air and we’re looking forward to looking forward. Oslo, our gerbil, remains healthy. "
