Coleman Takes WWAV Helm

30 March 2001

Following the departure of WWAV Rapp Collins’ former chief executive Lesley Mair to the presidency of Rapp Collins New York, her responsibilities at the British agency have been handed to Adam Coleman.

Coleman moves from managing director of the shop’s Scottish unit, triggering a round of executive musical chairs at Omnicom-owned WWAV, the UK’s largest direct agency.

Client services director Marco Scognamiglio replaces Coleman in Scotland, while Helen Simpson, managing director of WWAV Rapp Collins North is promoted to the chair of WWAV UK and Europe.

Said Chris Gordon, chairman and chief executive of WWAV Rapp Collins Group: “Adam's brief is to develop the agency as a whole and also further develop the creative product. He has a personal commitment to great work.”
