Bishop to head McCann/A&L

Published on .

Nick Bishop, president-CEO of San Francisco shop Anderson & Lembke, was named exec VP-CEO of the newly merged McCann-Erickson/A&L. The merged office, with $335 million in combined billings, becomes San Francisco's fifth-largest agency. The merger was expected as a result of A&L's win of Microsoft Corp.'s Windows 2000 account. Ron Benza, exec VP-general manager of McCann-Erickson World-wide's San Francisco office for six years, left the company to pursue options in the high-tech marketing field. In addition to Microsoft, clients of the combined agency include Blue Shield of California and Del Monte Foods USA.
