DALLAS Michael & Partners has appointed Heather Roberts president, the agency said.
Roberts, who was named vice president last April, will continue her creative duties, in addition to managing the shop's day-to-day operations.
Roberts has been with the Dallas-based agency since its inception in 1998. She joined M&P as director of creative services. Before that, Roberts was creative services director at DFW Executive Services in Dallas.
