Jean Faulkner is to leave Publicis after just six months as its sole

media director and will return to Conde Nast as a media research

director next February.



Faulkner is to succeed the current Conde Nast media research director,

Julia Dunn, who is returning to the US for family reasons. Faulkner’s

departure from Publicis is understood to be entirely amicable and her

time at the agency has been viewed a success.



At Publicis, Faulkner specialised in the beauty and retail sectors and

in developing new media opportunities for clients. It is not known

whether she will be replaced.



Faulkner said she was sorry to leave Publicis, but added: ‘My new role

at Conde Nast offers the most tremendous opportunity to develop

innovative research and marketing strategies for the company’s

portfolio.’



Nicholas Coleridge, managing director of Conde Nast, said: ‘Her

knowledge of the group, her expertise in research and marketing and her

recent experience on the other side of the fence in media buying equips

her brilliantly for her new role.’



When Faulkner left Conde Nast (Campaign, 24 May) she was the advertising

director of Brides and Setting Up Home. She had been with the company

for ten years.



Faulkner’s move to Publicis was one of a number where creative agencies

sought to hire media specialists to bring expert knowledge in-house.

Rhona Tridgell joined Foote Cone Belding from the Network as its first

media and communications director (Campaign, 15 November).
