WCRS has appointed Oscar Nieboer to handle the pounds 15 million

Camelot business which has been run by the agency’s managing director,

Stephen Woodford, since WCRS won the account from Saatchi & Saatchi in

August.



Nieboer joins from J. Walter Thompson, where he was a director in charge

of the Daily Telegraph, Merrill Lynch and the BT code change

accounts.



He worked closely with Ian Milligan, Camelot’s marketing director on a

number of accounts including Frosties, when Milligan was at Kellogg’s

two years ago.



’This is the right agency, the right position and the right assignment

at the right time,’ Nieboer said. ’WCRS is on a roll. It has strong

creative credentials and the casting of senior management is critical at

this time.’



Nieboer, who will report to Woodford, began his career as a graduate

trainee at Ogilvy & Mather, joining the creative department as a

copywriter under Mark Wnek.



After 18 months at O&M, Nieboer went to Grey Advertising, where he spent

a year working with clients including Procter & Gamble and Bacardi,

before joining JWT five years ago.



Woodford said: ’Oscar has just the right personal qualities, experience

and position to head up our Camelot team. Our campaign has got off to a

very strong start and he is the man to see it through from strength to

strength.’
