Nearly eight months after joining up with San Francisco’s Venables Bell & Partners as director of client service, Paul Birks-Hay is quickly moving up the ladder as the agency’s already promoted him to managing director. We’ve been told this is a newly created position at VB&P, which is also celebrating its reported 26 percent revenue growth in 2012 by promoting head of business development and eight-year vet Kate Jeffers to Birks-Hay’s old post and John Minty from CFO to COO.

As for the new managing director, Birks-Hay joined VB&P from U.K.-based AMV BBDO, where he spent two-and-a-half years and helped, win, lead and grow (we believe in that order) accounts including Mercedes-Benz, Capital One, Guinness, Diageo and PepsiCo.
