Ammirati Puris Lintas has appointed Jane Geraghty, McCann-Erickson’s

new-business director, to spearhead its new business drive.



Geraghty, 25, will be the agency’s first new-business director since the

merger of S. P. Lintas and Lintas i six months ago. William Eccleshare,

APL’s chief executive, said Geraghty would be ‘putting a public face on

what the new agency stands for’.



He added: ‘I hired her on the spot - and I never normally do that.’

APL has been without a new-business director since the sudden departure

of Lindsay Roberts seven months ago. Roberts quit SPL a month before the

two agencies merged under the banner of Lintas’s New York flagship,

Ammirati and Puris.



Geraghty said: ‘McCanns has been a great place to work but who could

resist the opportunity to help shape the youngest top ten agency?’
