Manning Gottlieb OMD aims for ‘equilibrium’ as it undertakes a major restructure

Manning Gottlieb OMD is undertaking a significant restructure which will affect all of its 290 employees.

The restructure is intended to provide ‘equilibrium’ to the group, as it merges its digital planning and communications planning departments.

No job losses will be made as part of this process the agency has confirmed to The Drum, which will see employees handed new job descriptions, while a newly created planning support team is to take the lead of project planning, with a staff of twelve.

“There’s an opportunity for a greater sense of equilibrium in terms of the contribution that a media agency brings to the party,” said Robert Ffitch, OMD’s chief executive.

The reshuffle includes the appointment of Caroline Clancy as head of technical innovation, and Sam Battams as technical innovation director, both formerly of Vizeum.
