Nick Wray, the newly appointed creative director of BDH

Communications, is to part company with the Manchester agency after only

nine months.



Wray, who is best known for the high-profile Coca-Cola football ads he

produced while freelancing for Wieden & Kennedy, will finish on-going

projects before leaving later this month.



Agency officials were reluctant to discuss details of the split, but the

joint managing director, Al Dickman, commented: ’Nick wanted to make

changes that the board couldn’t agree with, so it was mutually agreed

that it would be best if he left the agency.’



Dickman added that a new creative director will be chosen from within

the agency and that an announcement will be made within the next couple

of weeks. Wray was away on a shoot and unavailable for comment as

Campaign went to press.



Wray, a copywriter, joined BDH last July as part of a move to reposition

the GGT-owned agency as a broader communications company.



Originally a protege of Dave Trott at GGT, he rose to become a senior

figure at the agency. Wray left the agency in the early 90s and worked

at Miller & Leeves WAHT, J. Walter Thompson and Reay Keating, before

going freelance in 1994.
