Euro RSCG Wnek Gosper has lured Glen Flaherty, European planning

director on the Mars confectionery account at Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO,

back to the agency just nine months after he left.



The board-level appointment sees Flaherty resume charge of the pounds 30

million Abbey National account. Before he left the agency last year,

Flaherty led the development of the Abbey National ’because life’s

complicated enough’ campaign. He will also work on one other account

which has yet to be chosen.



Neil Dawson, planning director of Euro RSCG Wnek Gosper, said: ’Glen is

one of the finest players we have in London. We were sad to lose him and

we are very glad to have him back. Advertising is about ideas and

passion. He has both in abundance.’



Flaherty added: ’I’ve had a really interesting year at BBDO and now I am

looking forward to getting back into a real agency. There’s a buzz about

the place that I have missed enormously. It took me about two minutes to

make up my mind to go back.’



Flaherty first joined Euro RSCG Wnek Gosper in 1997. Before that, he

spent seven years at Grey, initially as head of planning at the London

office, then as European planning director for Mars.
