Principal Leaves Doig, Elliott, Schur For Post at FCB

Tim Elliott, a founder of Doig, Elliott, Schur, is leaving the agency to join Foote, Cone & Belding as executive vice president, worldwide account director on the shop’s Citibank business.

FCB New York president Charlie Taney said Elliott’s hire, effective June 16, ends a yearlong search to fill the new position. ‘We have to have a very serious grown-up’ managing the complexities of FCB’s second largest client, Taney said. Elliott has experience in the category, having overseen the worldwide American Express account at Ogilvy & Mather.

‘I prefer the larger, global scene,’ said Elliott as an explanation for leaving DES. Before opening the agency here in May 1994, Elliott was president of Earle Palmer Brown.

DES said it will not seek a partner to replace him. –Jennifer Comiteau
