Ammirati Puris Lintas has appointed two senior board account
directors to run its Rover, BT and PricewaterhouseCoopers accounts.
Steve Cooper will run the agency’s Rover business. He joins from the
sister Interpublic agency, Lowe Howard-Spink, where he was a board
account director on Hanson, Littlewoods, the COI and Imperial Tobacco.
He was also the general manager of Lowe & Partners, where he developed
the group’s integrated offer through the launch of Lowe Direct and the
acquisition of Interfocus.
Cooper replaces Mark Cadman, who was promoted to client services
director at the beginning of this year.
Meanwhile, Deborah Hill has moved from Interfocus, where she was the
business development director, to run the BT and PricewaterhouseCoopers
accounts. Hill has worked at APL before: she was a board account
director on the Interflora and Compaq accounts before she moved to
Interfocus about a year ago.
On PricewaterhouseCoopers, she replaces Paul Gordon who left the agency
in March to join Camp Chipperfield Hill Murray as managing director. APL
won a place on the BT business-to-business roster in February.
Chris Thomas, APL’s chief executive, said: ’It’s about making sure we
have very, very senior and experienced account handlers to head up key
pieces of business. Steve brings experience and maturity to our account
management line-up. Deborah has a proven track record at APL. We are
delighted that she is returning to the fold.’
