Williams Lea appoints ex-agency boss to Tag
Friday, November 30, 2012
Williams Lea is understood to have found a new figurehead for Tag Worldwide following the departure of chief executive Steve Parish, who leaves at the end of this calendar year.
Parish’s exit, together with fellow shareholder and commercial director Richard Jameson, was announced late last month, at which time there was no word on their successors.
Williams Lea has maintained a stony silence on the subject. However, industry sources have now told PrintWeek that Peter Zillig, formerly of ad agencies Lowe & Partners and Euro RSCG, has taken up the reins at Tag.
Williams Lea confirmed that Zillig had joined the company but denied that he was a direct replacement for Parish.
The selection of Zillig, with his extensive agency experience, as Parish’s replacement could prove a determining factor in maintaining the close client relationships that were seen as central to Tag’s success.
Parish sold international design and production agency Tag to Williams Lea in July 2011.Tweet
