Andy Bryant, the Bates Dorland joint head of client services and account chief on its pounds 17 million Heinz business, has quit to take a senior agency job in Australia.

Andy Bryant, the Bates Dorland joint head of client services and

account chief on its pounds 17 million Heinz business, has quit to take

a senior agency job in Australia.



He is joining the Bates network’s Campaign Palace in Sydney as one of

its five-man management team. He will also have responsibility for

Westpac bank, a major sponsor of the next Olympic Games, which appointed

the agency in the spring.



His move, for an indefinite period, reflects a growing trend within the

network to broaden the experience of senior managers by switching them

between offices across the world.



Bryant, 39, has overseen some of Dorlands’ most high-profile advertising

for Heinz. As head of the agency’s Bass lagers business, he was

responsible for developing the innovative ’back-to-front’ TV ads for

Tennent’s Pilsner.



’I’ve spent six happy years at Dorlands but Campaign Palace is a very

progressive and extremely creative agency,’ Bryant said.



Bryant’s departure means that David Wood will move from joint head of

client services to take full control. It will also precipitate a

reshuffle of the Heinz account team although Chris Clark, the Dorlands

managing director, said Bryant’s replacement was likely to be an

internal one.
