Phillipson left Smile in March to set up his own agency in Leeds (Marketing, March 14). The Smile business is the first piece of work the new entity has pitched for.
Phillipson's responsibilities have been assumed by Smile chief executive Bob Head who headed up the pitch process. There are no plans to replace Phillipson in the near future.
Smile's most recent above-the-line advertising featured cartoon characters such as 'Mr Unethical' and 'Mr Unhelpful' on bright backdrops to emphasise the bank's ethical positioning.
