Fishburn Hedges has appointed Sue Garrard, a senior board director
at sister ad agency Abbott Mead Vickers, as a board director.
Garrard will move across in September from her post at the Omnicom-owned
ad giant. Having begun her career as a civil servant and worked on the
privatisation of British Gas in the early 1980s, Garrard has been at AMV
since 1991, working on accounts such as Walkers Crisps and Wella.
Fishburn Hedges chief executive Neil Hedges said Garrard would 'add
weight' to the agency's consumer marketing expertise and creativity
across the range of its services. 'She is also expected to strengthen
our ties with our advertising parent company,' he added.
Garrard explained she had been attracted to FH because of its
involvement with public affairs and focus on strategic planning.
