The Leith Agency has announced a new management structure as it moves into the New Year with Sean Moore and Claire Kinloch being appointed to the board.
Kinloch has joined the board having just been appointed as sole head of direct following the resignation of Ian White, who will move to join Gary Smith at his new agency, Hush.
Moore, creative director of below-the-line at Leith, joined from Tequila/London where he was creative director in May 2006.
Richard Marsham, managing partner at The Leith Agency, said of the appointments: “Both Sean and Claire have been fundamental to our success in 2007. Our new management structure ensures we have a continued focus in growing and developing below-the-line in 2008.”
Meanwhile, the agency has also been appointed to work for the Federation of Bakers following a three-way pitch.
Leith will conduct research into the bread market and its consumers in order to develop an integrated campaign starting later this year, aimed at increasing bread sales.
However, it is believed that car giants Seat has moved its direct account from Leith’s London-based sister agency Farm. The account was handled by The Leith Agency until last year.
Marsham commented: “For geographical reasons we moved the servicing of the Seat account down to our London office Farm last year. As of the end of the 2007 the project they were working on has been completed and there are no plans for any new work at the moment.”
