KHBB has hired Kevin Jones, the former Lowe Howard-Spink award-winning
art director, to partner its senior copywriter, Paul Domenet.
Jones left Lowes three weeks ago (Campaign, 3 December), along with his
copywriting partner, Geoff Cousins. At the time, Lowes’ managing
director, Tim Lindsay, said the pair had been made redundant.
Jones had only been freelancing at KHBB for one week when its creative
director, Keith Courtney, offered him a job. Courtney and Jones
previously worked together at Lowes in 1994.
Domenet has been without a partner since Peter Harold, KHBB’s head of
art, left the agency two months ago.
Jones said: ‘I’m joining at an exciting time for the agency. It is
producing a lot of good work at the moment under Keith and this is an
interesting prospect. I didn’t know Paul before, but we hit it off
Courtney said: ‘Kevin has a very good press and TV book, and we are
lucky to have him. He is the kind of person who will exert his
personality in this department.’
