  6. Probably because a planner is the CEO. Natural tendency is to expand your area of expertise.

    I can remember when an account service type ran LB and it was loaded with Account Service types.

    Neither of the above comments are negative or positive, it just is. Some agencies are known primarily as Creative Agencies , or Strategic Agencies etc etc.

  8. understand the point, although I’d actually argue it could be the opposite.

    We’ll put 4 planners in charge because we don’t have anybody to really put in charge (which may or may not be because the CEO planner who used to be in charge of planning doesn’t want to have a new planner in charge of planning!)
