Strike Up the Brand




Ingalls Jiggers Account Service Department
BOSTON–Ingalls has restructured its account management team, hiring several out-of-region executives in an effort to add big-brand experience.
The Boston shop has named John Anderson vice president and account director, Kate Clarke management supervisor and Joey Curtis and Pamela Lieske Millard account supervisors. In addition, Lee Gustafson has been promoted to vice president and management supervisor.
The moves were spearheaded by senior vice president and account management director Randy Browning, who joined the agency last year and has sought to upgrade the quality of its account service across the board.
Looking to make account service more “performance driven,” Browning chose staffers who will not only service client business but also strive to understand the complexities of accounts and determine creative solutions to build brands in the marketplace.
Anderson, who was with The Martin Agency in Richmond, Va., and Millard, who was with McCann-Erickson in Seattle, will mainly work on the Citizens Bank business. They assume some of the duties of John Hurlbut, who left last year for a top marketing post at Hasbro Interactive.
Clarke, who is charged with day-to-day chores on T.J. Maxx, replaces Don Carlin, who left Ingalls last year for Pro Media in Natick, Mass. In addition, Clarke will oversee HomeGoods, which is owned by T.J. Maxx parent TJX Cos.
Curtis, who worked on the General Motors credit card and Money magazine accounts at Mullen in Wenham, Mass., will handle Teradyne and Radisson Hotels.
