Lowe hires Goodby Silverstein planner

Lorenzo Bresciani, a strategy planning director at Goodby Silverstein & Partners, is to join Lowe London as its global strategy director for Inbev next week.

Bresciani joins the agency after working at Goodby Silverstein for the past 18 months on the HP business. He was responsible for launching the HP Touch-Smart Personal Computer and creating HP's environment and recycling communications programme.

At Lowe, Bresciani will sit alongside fellow global strategy directors, who handle different clients' global businesses. He will work on InBev's Beck's and Artois brands. He will be based in Lowe's London office and report to Rebecca Morgan, the agency's chief strategy officer.
