Gareth Howells, co-founder of Newhaven, has departed The Leith Agency less than a year after he rejoined the company following its acquisition of Newhaven.

Howells made the shock decision to return to the agency he and his Newhaven co-founders broke away from in 2002, taking the Tennent's account with them.

He was appointed to work alongside the agency's creative manager Phil Evans last year, but left the agency last Friday.

Richard Marsham, group managing partner of Tangible Group, the parent group of The Leith Agency explained that "both parties chose to review the situation and felt it wasn't working out as well as we had hoped and that it was time to call it a day and move on."

Howells said: "I have to thank Richard and Gerry Farrell [creative director] and the team at Leith for a great 11 months.

"Working with Phil Evans was an honour and a pleasure. We did some great work for Border Biscuits, Baxters, and the Scottish Government." he added.

Newhaven was acquired by The Leith Agency in June.
