Fallon McElligott has poached Ben Gregor, one of this year’s

Campaign Faces to Watch (Campaign, 21 January), from Duckworth Finn

Grubb Waters.



Gregor, a 26-year-old account planner, joined Duckworth Finn as a

graduate trainee in September 1997 after earning a degree in Japanese

from Robinson College, Cambridge.



Laurence Green, a partner at Fallon, said: ’Ben is as sharp as a tack

and we are delighted that he is coming to Fallon. Strategy is a

collective responsibility at the agency and Ben will bring a fresh blast

of intellectual energy.’



During his time at Duckworth Finn, Gregor has worked on accounts

including Daewoo Cars and CGU Insurance. He now works on Mothercare and

two IPC titles, NME and Melody Maker, for which he won an Account

Planning Group award last year.



Gregor was described by Michael Finn, the chief executive of Duckworth

Finn, as ’super bright’ with ’a lot of presence’. At the agency, Gregor

also worked with Dave Waters on the creative concept design for the Body

Zone, which has been the most popular attraction in the Millennium

Dome.



Gregor will work on a full range of Fallon’s accounts, starting with BBC

Radio 1. The agency’s other accounts include Skoda, Starbucks, Lee

Jeans, IPC, Trebor Bassett, Nandos Chicken and Timex watches.



Other Fallon hirings over the past month include a creative services

director, Andy Carr, from Lowe Lintas, the creative team, Ed Edwards and

Dave Masterman, from BMP DDB, and Steve Waring as finance director from

Willott Kingston Smith.
