Banzon to Direct Account Services At E. James White

E. James White Communications has added Jose Banzon as a partner and senior vice president in charge of account services.

“We’re growing fast,” said Banzon, referring to the Herndon, Va., agency’s recruitment of creative director Bill Puckett from Long Haymes Carr in Winston-Salem, N.C., and account manager Joe DePreta from BellSouth Wireless in Atlanta. “This is an opportunity to utilize both my new economy and agency experience.”

Banzon leaves New York’sgovWorks.com, a search portal for government services, where he was vice president of marketing.

His agency experience includes stints at Kenyon & Eckhardt; Foote, Cone & Belding; and DDB Worldwide, all in New York.
