One of BT’s most senior marketers, Simon Ingman, is leaving the company after 15 years. It is not known if he has another job to go to.
Ingman, who has been brand and sponsorship director for the past five years at BT, oversaw the company’s 2003 rebrand to its “connected world” logo.
He was also responsible for BT’s sponsorship portfolio, including its recent partnership with the successful London 2012 Olympic bid.
BT declined to comment on Ingman’s departure, but it is thought the brand and sponsorship department will report to group marketing director Tim Evans until a successor is found.
Ingman is the latest in a series of high-profile departures at BT. Head of communications planning and media Grant Millar is joining Vizeum as managing director, and broadband chief officer Alison Ritchie is leaving later this month after her role was scrapped (MW August 18).
Last month, Abbott Mead Vickers.BBDO beat St Luke’s to win the &£40m brief to create a unified consumer campaign for BT, as first tipped in Marketing Week (June 2).
AMV and St Luke’s, BT’s roster agencies, were involved in a final contest for the business after Fallon pulled out of the pitch and stepped down from the company’s roster after citing creative differences.
