Evans Hunt Scott, the Euro RSCG-owned direct marketing agency, is

launching a sister operation in Leeds, to be headed by two directors

from WWAV Rapp Collins North.



Ashley Bolser and Jane Ison, who are negotiating their departure from

WWAV North this week, will be joined at EHS Bolser Ison by a creative

team from WWAV North, Andy Hair and Adrian Mullen.



The group will acclimatise themselves to EHS in London before setting up

in the North.



The new operation will work independently of the London agency, although

it will be able to draw on its resources.



Terry Hunt, the executive creative director of EHS, said: ’We’re

delighted to be backing such a high-quality team which shares our

business values and ambitions for direct marketing.’



It is understood that Bolser is on six months’ notice, but it is unclear

how much of that period he will be required to serve.



Ison is due to start maternity leave shortly, so is also not expected to

join EHS for some time. She has been with the WWAV group for ten years,

apart from a 22-month period spent at Richardson Pailin & Fallows in the

middle of her career.



The managing director of WWAV North, Helen Simpson, said of the

departures: ’We’ve never been about one or two individuals but about

teamwork. We’re sorry to see them go, but some senior appointments made

recently will more than balance out the loss.’



EHS Bolsor Ison will compete at a regional level with the likes of

Judith Donovan Associates, Poulter Direct, McCann-Erickson Manches- ter

and WWAV North.
