Anomaly London has announced the appointment of former Richard Lawson to serve as managing director, ending a 13 year career with BBH which saw him rise to the post of managing partner and head of account management.

The marketing and advertising agency will task Lawson with liaising directly with its clients including Diageo, Budweiser, Trainline, Cancer Research UK, P&G and Universal Music as well as working alongside Camilla Harrisson, Stuart Smith, Oli Beale and Alex Holde.

Camilla Harrisson, CEO & partner at Anomaly London said: “BBH has delivered excellence over decades and is, without doubt, one of the agency brands I most admire – I feel very lucky that, in Richard, we have someone with such an exceptional pedigree. Not only does he have that rare blend of intelligence, experience and curiosity we were looking for, but Richard is one of the nicest guys one could wish to work with.”

Lawson added: “The Anomaly model has always struck me as different and interesting, and the London office is on an incredible roll right now. Everyone I’ve met there is both brilliant and lovely, and I’m honoured to be joining the team.”

At BBH Lawson was responsible for overseeing brands such as Axe, Johnnie Walker and Barclays and is currently responsible for the British Airways account.
