OMD UK, part of Omnicom’s worldwide media network, has appointed one of its managing partners, Steve Williams, to head the British operation as managing director. His elevation, effective immediately, is part of an ongoing European restructure masterminded by chief executive Colin Gottlieb.

Says Williams: “Having the opportunity to take on this position comes at an exciting time, as we move in line with the development of OMD Europe. I will be reappraising the stage of our development in response to our changing network.”

In addition to his former duties as a managing partner, Williams shouldered new business development in addition to TV buying – a responsibility he shared with Iam Lomas, appointed last month to head client operations across OMD Europe.
