Lidstone, the agency’s former chief strategy officer, has been the acting chief executive since the departure of Mark Cadman in December.

Lidstone’s appointment follows the recent exit of Mark Hunter, the former executive creative director, who left the agency in April to join TBWA\London in the same role.

David Jones, the chief executive of Euro RSCG Worldwide, said: "Russ is a real star and has been from day one. Over the past few months, he has shown himself to be a natural leader and great CEO material for our London agency."
