The Week: People news - Spicer named MCCA chair

The Marketing Communication Consultants Association has appointed the EHS Brann managing director, Mike Spicer, as its new chairman.

Spicer, who has more than 20 years' experience in the industry, will be responsible for ensuring that the MCCA provides practical support to its members in training, development, legal advice, procurement and new-business services. He replaces the former Gyro chief executive Gary Brine, who stepped down from the role citing the need for the body to have a chairman who is also an agency head.
