Phil Teeman, a board director at The Network, Ogilvy & Mather’s

media dependant, is leaving to join the Discovery Channel as European

sales director.



Teeman’s move to the cable and satellite channel comes at a time when

The Network is preparing to merge with the media department of its

sister WPP agency, J Walter Thompson, to form MindShare.



Teeman, who handles Ford’s pan-European media account, and has been with

The Network for nine years, had originally been earmarked as a possible

broadcast director of the new media venture.



Teeman’s role will involve managing relationships between Discovery and

its different sales houses, including Flextech in the UK.
