Andrews Aldridge to appoint Paul Walton as new art supremo

Partners Andrews Aldridge has appointed Paul Walton as its head of

art.



Walton, 34, was previously a senior art director at Wunderman. He will

partner Shaun Moran, the head of copy, and report to Steve Aldridge, the

creative partner.



During ten years at Wunderman, Walton created work for Xerox, Ericsson,

Ford and American Express. He left Wunderman in February and has since

freelanced at agencies such as TBWA/GGT Direct. His move to Andrews

Aldridge sees him reunited with Moran, his partner at Wunderman.



Andrews Aldridge has hired Walton as it expands on the back of account

wins such as Lloyds TSB and Lexus.



Steve Aldridge told Campaign: "Paul has exceptional craft skills and an

eye for a good idea. He works tire-lessly and leads by example. He takes

responsibility not only for his own work, but for all the work the

agency produces."



Walton said: "Andrews Aldridge is still a relatively young agency and so

gives me an opportunity to have a say in the way it develops."
