LONDON: Hill & Knowlton's London outpost lost two more board directors last week, raising the total to five since the beginning of the year.

The latest to leave are youth marketing board director Dan Holliday and brands marketing board director Lucy Blencowe.

Holliday, who joined H&K over four years ago, plans to start a new agency when he formally departs at the end of the month. He has widely been credited with the development of the firm's youth marketing division, which counts Adidas and Motorola Europe among its clients.

Paul Taaffe, chairman of Hill & Knowlton International, said Holliday's departure may result in a shift in the youth marketing division's structure.

'Every option is being explored, and nothing has been ruled out,' he said.

Blencowe, who will leave H&K in June, is moving to Argentina for personal reasons and may consider a post in the agency's Buenos Aires office. Since joining H&K six years ago, she has headed up account teams for B&Q and Spanish retailer Aldiasa. Taaffe said her replacement will likely be chosen from within the firm.
