The World: Moscow - Leo Burnett realigns agencies under single chairman

The Leo Burnett Group is restructuring its business in Russia to align the main agency, its local creative shop, Mother Tongue, and its soon-to-be-launched marketing services agency, Arc, under the chairman, Sergey Koptev.

Koptev will be supported by Ruston Spurlock (pictured), the newly promoted group creative director in Moscow.

The Leo Burnett chairman for Central and Eastern Europe, Jarek Ziebinski, said: "The Leo Burnett Group concept is working for us very well in other countries throughout Europe. I am convinced that, with this structure and leadership, we will be able to both accelerate our business growth, and continue to attract clients and the best advertising talent in Russia."
