Billington Cartmell Group has today announced that Simon Marshall will be joining as Chief Executive Officer, taking over from John Gellett.

Simon has over 20 years of experience under his belt having been Chief Executive of Publicis Dialog in the UK, Director at OgilvyOne and most recently Managing Director of The Marketing Store North America.

There, Simon was responsible for operations in both the US and Canada representing a diverse group of clients including McDonald’s, Nissan, Shell, Coca-Cola North America and General Mills amongst others.  Simon’s other UK and international client experience includes American Express, British Airways, General Motors, Zurich Financial Services and Renault.

Rupert Howell, Non-Executive Chairman of Billington Cartmell Group commented: “When John joined us last year on a fixed term, we had a clear set of objectives and his remit was to drive these forward. John has certainly done this and more as 2013 has been a phenomenal year for the Group. We have recruited major new talent, such as Bo Hellberg as Executive Creative Director, modernized the business, and had significant new business success.  I am also delighted to confirm that John is staying on to develop an exciting new offering within the group. Simon’s role is to build on this success and take the Group through phase two”.

Marshall added: “I have followed the Group for several years and am deeply impressed with the heritage of the agency but also the major progress of the last couple of years.
