Hill, Devereux Advance at BBDO N.Y.

NEW YORK John Osborn, who was promoted in February to president, CEO of Omnicom Group’s BBDO here, has made two promotions of his own, the agency said.

Effective immediately, Nancy Hill, executive vice president, managing director who runs the agency’s AOL Broadband and 9.0 Optimized and PeopleSoft accounts, assumes the additional responsibility for new business, replacing the recently departed Lynne Seid.

Anne Devereaux, who heads up the shop’s direct-to-consumer healthcare discipline, will also become chief integration officer, succeeding Osborn. She helped land the agency’s first DTC accounts this year—Epipen and Nasonex.

Hill, 46, and Devereux, 42, both joined BBDO’s flagship New York office in 2003 and report directly to Osborn, who said in a statement, “We are fortunate to have someone of Nancy’s abilities to lead our business development efforts. As a former agency president, she understands the importance and urgency of growing revenues and has a proven track record of success. She will also bring a fresh approach to this responsibility.”

He continued, “At the same time, Anne’s experience as a healthcare marketer makes her the ideal candidate to manage BBDO’s continued evolution into a total integrated solutions provider. After all, effective healthcare marketing often requires a fully integrated communications program to be successful.”

BBDO’s clients include Pepsi, Campbell’s, Cingular, Federal Express, Frito-Lay, General Electric, Gillette, HBO, MasterFoods, Visa and Office Depot.
