Ammirati Puris Lintas has poached Mark Cadman, a director-in-charge

at J. Walter Thompson, to be its board account director on Rover.



Cadman’s appointment is the first move by Chris Thomas, the new managing

director of APL and head of its Rover account, to strengthen the car

client’s team. APL is fighting to retain the pounds 7 million direct

marketing side of the Rover business.



Cadman worked with Thomas on the pan-European launch of the Volvo S40

and V40 while at at Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO.



Thomas said: ’Mark is an outstanding account man. He is passionately

committed to strong creative work, he’s a good strategic thinker and a

brilliant team leader.’



Cadman said: ’I’m convinced that, with the senior management team at

APL, there is a sense of excitement and energy about the future.’



Cadman joined JWT two years ago to head its Kellogg’s Cornflakes

business.



While there, he also worked on Mazda, Shell, the Post Office and Parcel

Force.



He joined AMV in 1993 and, during his last year there, worked

exclusively on Volvo. During his time at the agency he helped to win the

Dunlop Slazenger racquets account and worked on Labbatt Brewing. Before

Abbott Mead, Cadman was at Publicis, servicing clients including

McVitie’s, Guinness and Terry’s of York.
