BFCS, the commercials production company, has hired Steen Agro, a young

director from the Manchester-based production company, Equinox, as it

continues to revitalise its roster of directors.



Agro, 31, was a staff director at Equinox, which he joined one year ago.

His appointment follows the hiring of Peter Harrison as BFCS’s new

managing director in December, after the sudden departure of the former

managing director, Ann Pugsley (Campaign, 1 December 1995).



Agro’s directing to date has included an ad for the Birmingham

International Motor Show and a series of hard-hitting commercials -

which he also wrote - for the Manchester Fire Service.



Agro commented: ‘I originally got into advertising because I thought it

would be a good springboard into directing and I’m delighted to be in

this position at last.’
