Brandhouse client services head poached by Albion

Brandhouse client services director Liz Wilson is to leave the consultancy to join advertising agency Albion in the same role. The consultancy has no plans to recruit a replacement.

After three years at Brandhouse, Wilson is taking her branding experience back to her advertising roots. She has previously held roles at ad agencies Lowe, TBWA and Euro RSCG.

In July, Brandhouse appointed Crispin Reed as managing director, replacing Mark Gandy. At the time, Reed said he expects to take on new recruits to support the growth of the business, which is anticipated in the creative and strategic areas.

According to Brandhouse chairman Mark Wickens, ‘There are currently no plans to recruit another client services director. However, now that Crispin is on board, this gives him an opportunity to review and build a new structure for the future.’

The move follows Albion’s appointment of five new creative group heads.
