Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO has appointed Cilla Snowball deputy
Her place as head of client services goes to Farah Ramzan, the account
director on BT.
The moves are in response to a wider role that has been taken within the
AMV group by Michael Baulk, the agency’s chief executive, and the extra
workload on Andrew Robertson, the managing director.
’Cilla will be me when I’m not around but we don’t know at this stage
exactly what her responsibilities will be,’ Robertson said. ’Our
management has always evolved gently.’
Snowball and Robertson first worked together 15 years ago at Ogilvy &
Mather, when he was a media planner and she an account manager.
Snowball was the first new-business director to be appointed by AMV,
which she joined in 1992. She led the agency’s successful pitches for
the Pizza Hut and W. H. Smith accounts and has played a major part in
the development of its Central Office of Information business.
Ramzan joined AMV from the then Burkitt Weinreich Bryant in 1990. She
ran the Sainsbury’s business for two years and recently succeeded Jeremy
Miles, the AMV vice-chairman, as board director responsible for BT.
