Kitcatt Nohr has overhauled its senior team as managing director Vonnie Alexander continues to make her mark on the agency after taking over from Marc Nohr at the beginning of the year.
Alexander (pictured, middle), who has already launched a new identity and ditched the Digitas brand, has promoted head of client services Annette Blunden (right) to the new role of deputy managing director, following her return from maternity leave.
The role will see Blunden overseeing client service and agency operations, while continuing to manage relationships with a number of the agency’s clients, including Sky and supermall owner Hammerson.
Blunden joined the agency in 2007 as client director, before becoming head of client services in 2010. Beginning her career client-side at Mars UK, Blunden then moved into account handling at TBWA\GGT, before joining CHI & Partners as client director, responsible for The Telegraph and RBS accounts.
Michael Cosham (left), currently business director at the agency, will now take on the role of client partner. Reporting directly to Blunden, he will head up the day to day running of the client services team. Cosham was at Kitcatt Nohr between 2007 and 2010, and returned to the agency last year after three years at Saatchi & Saatchi.
Blunden said: “To return to after maternity leave as deputy MD is incredibly motivating. I can’t wait to embrace the new role and work with the rest of the agency on being the best for our clients.”
Alexander added: “With Annette and Michael in their new roles we have a truly formidable senior team. They will help take the agency from strength to strength.”
The agency has also promoted former business director Nick Burbidge to head of operations, and account directors Harriet Elsom, Stephen Jefferys, Suzie Mills and Flic Theobald to business directors.
