THA: Ingram becomes sole owner

THA founder and chairman Kevin Ingram has become the sole owner of the agency following his acquisition of the shares of his two former partners Nick Robinson and Ian Williamson. The business was formed in March 2006 following the merger between THA (owned by Ingram and Robinson) and Q Group (owned) by Williamson. The company has offices in Leicester and Surrey, as well as Belgium and the US. Following the share acquisitions, Ingram has taken up the new role of president of global sales and account management, which it is thought will see him return to a more hands on, client-facing role. He will be supported by Darren Gilbert, who becomes chief executive officer. “The strong, highly skilled team that’s now in place coupled with ongoing investment in our people and a more streamlined operation will enable us to become a significant global player by 2010,” Ingram said. Robinson and Williamson remain with THA and, according to the company, “will be responsible for supporting key clients and generating new business”. Nobody at THA was available to clarify the former partners’ roles as C&IT’s News Tracker went to press. Last August saw THA report after-tax losses of almost £600,000. The company put £296,000 of the £597,000 losses down to one off costs associated with the merger with Q Group.
