Proximity chief Slough joins Iris

Proximity London managing director Chris Slough has quit the business to take up the role of chief client officer of Europe for Iris.
Slough will sit on the Iris European board and oversee business development across the continent, spearheading the agency’s digital and direct marketing offering.
He joined Proximity London from OgilvyOne in 2011 as deputy managing director after 17 years at the WPP agency; he was promoted to managing director after just six months.
Ian Millner, global chief executive officer of Iris, said: “Chris’ skills will allow us to really focus on turning the partnership we have with Meredith into competitive advantage for clients here in Europe, enabling us to do things in the CRM space that nobody else can.”
Meanwhile Proximity London has promoted deputy managing director Gabrielle Moss to succeed Slough.
She joined last year after spending three years at Proximity Paris, where she was deputy managing director. She will report to chief executive, Mike Dodds.
Dodds said: “I am sad to see Chris go as he is a close personal friend as well as a valued colleague. However, the role he is going to is a perfect fit for his client service skills, so we all wish him well.
“Gabrielle’s talent enables us to execute a seamless and progressive succession plan. She will be a fantastic managing director for the agency.”
