Two prominent executives from Lowe
Lintas & Partners Worldwide are leaving the agency group. Geoff Howard-Spink, co-founder with Frank Lowe of Lowe Howard-Spink, London, more than 19 years ago, is leaving Lowe Group. Mr. Howard-Spink most recently has worked at the agency, now Lowe Lintas, as a part-time consultant. He said he wants more time to pursue his interests in horseracing and new media. "Media, markets and consumers are what I've always worked in, and I'm going to carry on using that experience,'' Mr. Howard-Spink said. In the U.S., Neil Fox announced today he's stepping down effective immediately from his position as chairman-CEO of Lowe Fox Pavlika, the New York-based direct marketing subsidiary of Lowe Lintas. Mr. Fox, who founded Fox Pavlika, which merged with Lowe Direct in 1998, will take time off and decide what he wants to pursue next. Lowe Lintas in the coming weeks will announce a succession plan to fill Mr. Fox's positions.
