Phil Nunn lands top DraftFCB role

Phil Nunn, one of the industry’s best respected media planners, is joining DraftFCB London as it first head of planning communications.
Nunn, who leaves his job as executive media director at the TBWA Group – where he was reunited with his friend Allan Fraser-Rush – starts at DraftFCB next month.
He began his career at BBC Worldwide, and has had spells at Optimedia, Manning Gotlieb and OMD. In 2007, he co-founded Trinity Communications but left after less than two years. Trinity has since ceased trading.
At DraftFCB, Nunn will take on the role of global communications architect, reporting to global chief planning officer Simon Calvert.
Ross Sleight, who hired Nunn at Manning Gotlieb, said: “Phil is a tour de force in the marketing world – hugely inventive and creative, deep depths of expert knowledge, no nonsense direct advice and recommendations, motivating and inspiring to his team, and all wrapped up with a hearty laugh and smile. I loved working with Phil and hope to do so again.”
Nunn’s appointment follows the promotion of Sharon Jiggins from managing partner to the board position of managing director at DraftFCB. She joined the management team including president Kate Howe, chief operating officer Mark Young, chief creative director Mark Fiddes and Calvert.
