WPP Moves Ex-JWT London Boss to Global Role

10 January 2006

Musical chairs at WPP Group.

Following a recent string of near-miss attempts to win major new clients (British Airways, Sainsbury's Supermarkets and Unilever) Simon Bolton was recently displaced as ceo of JWT's London office by Toby Hoare.

But Bolton this week collects his consolation prize: the global chief executive role at WPP's Enterprise IG branding consultancy whose tentacles stretch across seventeen countries and 21 offices.

Completing the threesome reel is current Enterprise IG ceo Dave Allen, who moves across to JWT London to head 'Team Vodafone', coordinating the efforts of over thirty WPP units worldwide that service the global cellphone giant.
