Howell takes key role at Advertising Association

LONDON - The Advertising Association has elected Rupert Howell, ITV's managing director of brand and commercial, as vice-chairman and director.

Howell takes up the new role with immediate effect, replacing ITV commercial director Ian McCulloch, who left ITV last summer.

Howell secured his first job in advertising at the Ogilvy group in 1979 and has been EMEA regional director at McCann Erickson. He has also been president of the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising for 2000/2001.

Baroness Peta Buscombe, the Advertising Association's chief executive, said: "I am delighted Rupert is coming on board. His tremendous breadth of experience in the industry, coupled with his amazing 'can do, will do' approach means that he is extremely well placed to make a terrific contribution to the work of the Advertising Association."
