Sometimes, even an agency can be better the second time around.
After a three-year absence, Steve Woolford has returned to Asher & Partners in Los Angeles as senior vice president, director of account services. Woolford spent those three years in Stuttgart, Germany, working for Porsche AG as director of sales for North America.
"I moved [back to the U.S.] for family reasons," said Woolford, who worked for clients such as Suzuki as a senior vice president, account director at Asher from 1990-95. "But I also knew the team [at Asher]. It's a good, independent agency, and there is a lot of opportunity here."
Woolford, who rejoined the shop late last month, will focus on client services and bringing in new business. His other agency experience includes stints at DDB Needham and Ally & Gargano in New York, and at Rubin Postaer and Associates in Santa Monica, Calif. --Teresa Bukiyan
