Walsh quits Times to be FT's new ad director

The Financial Times has poached David Walsh, the deputy director of advertising at the Times and Sunday Times, to be its new ad director. The appointment ends a lengthy search by the FT and is the first job Walsh has taken in the industry outside of News International. He started out at NI as an ad sales executive, working his way up to his current position in 1993. He will take up his new post at the FT in January 1999, reporting directly to Michael Murphy, the FT's worldwide commercial director.
