Saatchi & Saatchi London Announces Board Changes

Saatchi & Saatchi London promoted the creative directors Rob Potts and Andy Jex to executive creative directors, handing them responsibility for the agency's creative department. Their promotion is part of a management reshuffle that moves the creative partners, Paul Silburn and Kate Stanners, and the strategy director, Richard Huntington, to group-wide roles. Silburn and Stanners become the chief creative officers, while Huntington takes the post of chief strategy officer. The newly created roles take effect immediately. The trio will be responsible for creative and strategic output at Saatchi & Saatchi, Outside Line and Saatchi & Saatchi X. Saatchi Masius is part of Saatchi & Saatchi London's group of agencies but is treated differently because it functions as a conflict shop. Stanners will continue to run the HSBC and Visa accounts, while Silburn will lead the recently won GBP 45 million Direct Line business. Potts and Jex will be in charge of all other Saatchi & Saatchi London clients, including EE, Kerry Foods and Toyota. They will report to Silburn and Stanners. Lisa Bowcott, Saatchi & Saatchi London's head of planning, who joined in January 2014, will assume responsibility for the planning department and report to Huntington.
