Killbourn quits JWT to head planning on Masterfoods at AMV

Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO has poached a global planning director from J. Walter Thompson to head planning across its entire Masterfoods account.

Lisa Killbourn had worked on JWT's Kellogg business, and joins AMV as a board account director, working across 12 Masterfoods brands.

She will report directly to AMV's planning head, Mike Teasdale, and will be responsible for a team of three planners. She replaces two board planners who previously ran the account and have now been moved to other business within the agency.

Killbourn started her career at CDP, moving to Bates Dorland. She joined JWT's planning department in 1997.
