MindShare is rejigging its IBM account team following the departure
of account director Phil Hodgkiss.
Hodgkiss left the agency last week. He spent two years at MindShare
handling the product side of IBM’s pounds 30 million media account.
Instead of replacing him, MindShare is spreading Hodgkiss’s
responsibilities among the IBM team.
The IBM division consists of managing partner Simon Francis, business
director Abid Ansari, account manager Mike Mulholland, account manager
Helen Siblock and account executive Gavin Finch.
Since leaving the company, Hodgkiss has held talks with Reed Business
Information about consulting on potential advertising projects, but he
has also had several job interviews with other media agencies.
Hodgkiss told Media Business he would make a decision over his future
job plans in the next few weeks.
