Euro RSCG Wnek Gosper is beefing up its creative services department by

luring Lowe Howard-Spink’s Mark Cooke as executive director of creative

services.



Cooke, 33, has worked with Lowes’ chairman, Frank Lowe, since leaving

school, latterly as deputy head of traffic and production.



Cooke will now take a seat on the board at Euro RSCG, a rare appointment

for a traffic controller. His arrival in January will mean that the

existing head of traffic, Mike Chubb, will concentrate more on print

production, while Cooke will take a broader role, including art buying

and general control of the creative department.



His recruitment reunites him with Mark Wnek, Euro RSCG’s executive

creative director. Wnek worked closely with Cooke during his time at

Lowes, when he partnered the art director, Alan Waldie.



‘I spent several years with Mark at Lowes and I know he was the best in

a department widely accepted as the best in the business,’ Wnek said.
