Davies quits after failing to win BDH's top creative post

BDH/TBWA's creative director, Ken Davies, has left the agency after

failing to secure the top creative post in a management restructure.



The agency considered Davies and the joint creative director, Danny

Brooke-Taylor, for a single creative director post. Brooke-Taylor was

selected for the role, prompting Davies to leave BDH to find another

job.



Davies joined BDH as a junior art director before being promoted to head

of art in 1989. He became creative director in 1998. His work includes

TV spots for Solvite, Cussons and Focus Do it All.



BDH has also promoted the managing director, Neil Griffiths, to the role

of group managing director. He will develop the agency's marketing

services operation and work with clients on closer co-operation with

other TBWA Group companies.



Carol Smith is promoted to the role of managing director and will assume

responsibility for the day-to-day running of the agency. Nick Brookes

takes the role of deputy managing director.



Brooke-Taylor said: "I just want to make our clients famous, our peers

respectful and ourselves proud."



Bryn Butler, the chief executive of BDH/TBWA, said: "We are delighted

that we are promoting such a strong team. We are confident of the new

wave of energy and ideas they will bring to the agency."



BDH/TBWA clients include Cussons, Nissan, Focus Do it All and Crown

Paints.



Account wins this year include Wickes and Reg Vardy.
