Ingram shuffles management pack

The Ingram Partnership has signed up two new senior managers while saying goodbye to one of its founder members, reports Paul Donovan.

 

Glyn Britton (pictured), the founder and lead strategist of Omnicom’s branding agency Innocence, brings in experience of having worked on the client and agency side.

 

Previously, Britton worked for British Airways developing the initial online strategy before moving to leading brand consultancy Interbrand.

 

He worked on the new visual identity for Barclays and developed online brands such as internet supermarket brand Ocado.

 

He will work alongside joint managing director Leslie Butterfield at Ingram.

 

The second recruit is Neil Barrie, a European retail analyst, who joins from market researchers Mintel.

 

Barrie will run the information and research unit at Ingram.

 

Among Barrie’s past credits was the publication of a 15-country report on E-commerce as well as grocery and clothing retail in Europe.

 

However Duncan Bruce, former partner and founder of one of the companies bought to form the Ingram Partnership, is leaving the organization.

 

Bruce will form his own organisation but will continue on a consultancy basis with Ingram.

 

Chris Ingram, founder of the Ingram Partnership, said: “Duncan’s real passion is for creative execution and we can only offer our clients truly impartial advice if we have no vested interest in implementation.

 

“We have therefore come to the amicable solution of going our separate ways.”
