Hunt Cooke heads the prospect acquisition and customer retention for the agency's Honda account and was instrumental in winning the dealership marketing business earlier this year. Gordon, who runs the agency's Camelot and Diageo business, will also now work with Hicklin Slade's director of digital, Dan Thwaites, on building its digital capability. The promotions bring the number of partners at the agency to five alongside Mark Runacus, Matthew Brown and Justin Hicklin. Brown said: "Melissa and Andy have made a huge contribution to the agency's development in recent years and I am delighted they have agreed to become partners. They will now take a broader role in the day-to-day running of the business."
