In an effort to attract prospective clients and to bring greater visibility to its name, BBDS has hired Foote, Cone & Belding’s No. 2 new-business executive.

Steve Congdon, 35, takes the newly created position of vice president, business development. Congdon reports directly to Dick Sanderson, the Chicago shop’s pres ident and CEO.

Sanderson said the agency “will expand [its] investment in staff, materials and promotion to provide Steve with the resources he needs.”

Congdon said he plans to look at how BBDS has fallen short in business competitions to learn what he needs to do.
