Former Craik Jones chief executive Fiona Scott has returned to agencyland – following a five-year break – to take on the day-to-day running of Elvis Communications as managing director.
Scott started her career at BDP in 1991, then spent seven years at BBH’s direct agency Limbo, where she rubbed shoulders with the likes of Ben Stephens, Mike Cavers and Juliet Timms.
She joined Craik Jones in 1998, taking over the management of the agency after one-by-one the founders quit.
Scott left in December 2007, and was among a number of high-level exits over a two-month period, including managing director Jackie Stevenson, co-founder David Watson and creative chief Mark Buckingham.
The agency, a one-time darling of the industry, merged with Proximity London a year later and was axed.
At Elvis, Scott will report to co-founder Martin Semmens and spearhead the agency’s direct and data capabilities
She will be supported by Tanya Brookfield, who has been promoted to deputy managing director from client services director.
Semmens said: “Fiona arrives at Elvis at an exciting time in our growth. She brings with her an impeccable pedigree, strong leadership credentials and a deep understanding of the future of our space. She will be a great asset to our leadership team here.”
