Richard Morris, DDB London’s business development director, has been promoted to regional director for DDB Europe. He will take over the role on February 5.
Morris, who will report to DDB Europe president Michael Bray, has a brief to develop DDB from traditional new business sources and other areas such as content, alliances and new ventures. Philip Heimann, business director on the Volkswagen account, will take over as new business director. The agency has appointed Jonathan Hill to take over the VW business. He joins from Saatchi & Saatchi, where he was responsible for Toyota.
Nick Fox, senior vice-president of DDB Europe, will take over as chief operating officer of DDB London.
The changes come just weeks after Stephen Woodford, chairman and chief executive, took over the role.
