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

the agency.



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

management.’



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.
