According to LLM co-founder Ben Lucas, Abbotts will help with the management of the business, aid its new business drive and lead some of its major accounts. He will sit alongside fellow LLM associate directors Henneka Sharif and Mark Titterington.
Abbotts joined TCG only last autumn to replace Anthony Painter, who quit alongside political division MD Ian Lindsley to set up their own PA consultancy (PRWeek, 24 October 2003).
The agency still lacks a divisional MD. TCG chairman Maureen Smith said it had promoted account director Rebecca Paczek to take Abbotts’s role.
