Gillian Thomas has been appointed as a fully fledged partner at The Partners.
Thomas, who has been at The Partners for nine years, was made an associate partner two years ago. Her clients include Asda and Unilever.
She will be leading a team with fellow partner David Stuart, following the re-organisation of the group over the past two months into three “teams”.
The restructure was already in hand when partner Steve Gibbons left the consultancy last year.
The Partners has been appointed by Halfords to design packaging for a range of replacement automotive wheel trims.
