Susie Galbraith, the only woman board director at WCRS, is quitting to become a junior partner at Banks Hoggins O’Shea.

Susie Galbraith, the only woman board director at WCRS, is quitting to

become a junior partner at Banks Hoggins O’Shea.



Galbraith joined WCRS last May as a group account director with special

responsibility for training and development. She took a seat on the

agency’s 25-strong main board and handled several major accounts,

including Iceland, Trebor Bassett and Tate and Lyle.



‘The culture of WCRS is not quite my style,’ Galbraith, who also worked

at WCRS in the mid-80s, explained.



Galbraith began her advertising career as a graduate trainee with

Saatchi and Saatchi, before moving on to WCRS.



From there, she went on to work on the Volvo account at Abbott Mead

Vickers BBDO. Galbraith left Abbott Mead to become Duckworth Finn Grubb

Waters’ first appointment. She stayed at Duckworth Finn for six years,

working on accounts such as Appletise, Melitta and the Independent

Television Commission.



Galbraith is due to take up her post at Banks Hoggins on 1 September.

She is expected to become one of the agency’s ten senior partners after

a year.



The Banks Hoggins managing director, John Banks, said Galbraith’s

appointment would take some of the pressure off existing staff following

the arrival of several pieces of new business this year, including the

Referendum Party and Kingsbury furniture accounts.



She will work on the agency’s Buena Vista Disney business, as well as

devoting a substantial part of her time to new business.
