estructure sees new CEO for THA Group

A shake-up at agency THA Group will see its UK board of directors take on hands-on positions and a new chief executive. The structural changes, which take effect from 1 January 2008, will see chief operating officer Darren Gilbert replace Kevin Ingram as chief executive. As well as Gilbert’s move, the board will take on the following positions: (current chairman and chief executive) Kevin Ingram, chairman and president of global sales account management (GSAM); (current director) Nick Robinson, director and executive sponsor; (current director) Ian Williamson, director and executive sponsor; (current communications director) Heather Robinson, director (account management); (current client services director) Kirsty Dean, director (account management); Diane Parsons, director (account management); and (current director – event management) John Hooker, director (client delivery specialists). THA Group chief executive and future president of the GSAM division Kevin Ingram said structural changes were designed, following consultation with clients, to ensure that the agency continued to meet, and exceed, clients’ expectations as the business evolved. “Many organisations tend to have account directors ensuring client delivery, but we are taking account management to another level,” said Ingram. “THA Group benefits from an exceedingly strong board and by putting them at the forefront of the business. Highly skilled members of the team they are really able to integrate with clients and understand their needs as these programmes become more complex.” Chief executive elect Darren Gilbert said: “The new board model can be built on where necessary in the future, enabling the company to use this format wherever the office location may be and to enter new areas without having to recreate an entirely new infrastructure. This is a structure that not only supports our international business as it is today, but will be able to support our growth ambitions in the future.”
