Pippa Evans has left GCI to become the head of Countrywide Porter

Novelli’s London consumer marketing group.



Evans, who was previously at The Rowland Company, joined GCI in a

part-time role last year as head of corporate and consumer PR with a

brief to win more FMCG business.



She joins Countrywide in a full-time role as replacement for Diane

VandenBurg, who was made Countrywide’s director of marketing earlier

this year. Evans’ appointment sees her return to board level - she was

on the Rowland board - as one of seven directors.



As head of the consumer marketing group, Evans will be in charge of a

25-strong team handling clients which include: McDonald’s, WH Smith and

Fox’s Biscuits.



At GCI, Evans did not head any defined team. Chief executive Adrian

Wheeler said: ’Pippa worked with a number of departments very

successfully, if she had stayed longer she would have amassed so much

work she would have had to have gone full-time here, but Countrywide is

a good opportunity for her.’
