Lowe Lintas & Partners has hired Jonathan Rigby as its new-business

director following the move of Charlie Parkin to a consultancy role at

the agency’s European office.



Rigby joins from WCRS, where he was a senior account man and worked on

pitches for the National Lottery, Anchor and Buzz.



On top of his new-business role, Rigby will also run the Nestle Rowntree

account.



Jane Geraghty, who was new business director at Ammirati Puris Lintas

before the merger, is leaving Lowe Lintas to take a job in New York. She

has been running the Nestle Rowntree account as well as working on new

business during Parkin’s absence.



Rigby has been at WCRS since 1992, apart from a two-year stint at Abbott

Mead Vickers BBDO.



At WCRS he worked on Bass, Prudential and First Direct and in 1998 led

the team that won the National Lottery pitch.



Paul Hammersley, chief executive of Lowe Lintas, said: ’I’m delighted

that Jonathan will be bringing his new-business skills and his ability

to develop great creative work on big accounts to Lowe Lintas.’



Rigby said: ’When Paul offered me the job, I knew I’d be mad not to

accept it. Lowe Lintas is a merger that has worked both for the people

that work there and for its clients.’
