Delaney Fletcher Bozell has promoted two of its staff to the
position of joint managing director, as the agency’s chief executive and
managing director, Mark Lund, moves away from the day-to-day running of
Tom Knox, deputy managing director, and Richard Warren, head of
planning, are taking up the new roles immediately.
Lund, who drops his managing director title but remains chief executive
in the move, said: ’It will give me more time to be the external face of
the agency. I’m also going to be more involved with pursuing
multi-national business. It’s important to evolve the agency’s
Knox has been deputy managing director for two years, before which he
was head of client services. Warren joined from Kirschenbaum Bond &
Partners in New York last June, where he was a group account manager on
the Snapple and Prudential Healthcare accounts. He succeeded Chris
Blayze, who moved to TBWA GGT Simons Palmer. Knox and Warren worked
together at Chiat Day in the early 90s.
In addition to the twin promotions, Tara Howe, an account handler on
Bestfoods and IPC, is being promoted to board account director while the
account planner, Alice Schaffer, becomes board account planner.
The agency hired Andy Smith as its first board-level operations director
last November. He had been St Luke’s creative services director.
Last week Delaney Fletcher picked up the pounds 2 million relaunch
account for the EMVI-owned Harmony hair care range. It won the business
following a pitch against Bates Dorland and Byron Advertising.
