Movers: Appointment at Publicis

Erin Heath, Publicis' new client services director, has strengthened the agency's account handling teams with two internal promotions.

Melissa Hopkins, previously the client director on MFI and Nestle Waters, becomes the brand director of United Biscuits and Nestle Waters. Hopkins retains her responsibilities as joint head of campaign management, to which she was appointed in July to help oversee the career development, account allocation and recruitment of staff within the Publicis account handling division.

Leigh Baker (pictured), the client director on United Biscuits, becomes the brand director on the global Ballantine's account. Baker will also be responsible for Chivas Brothers, Pernod Ricard's Scotch whisky arm.
