Arnold Furnace has announced a new executive team following the departure of managing director Tony Singleton in May, with Havas Worldwide CEO Anthony Gregorio and Arnold Furnace client services director Michael Stevenson assuming management responsibilities for the agency.

They will be supported by ECD Tom Spice and head of planning Thomasine Burnap, who will handle the strategy elements of Singleton’s role.

Stevenson was promoted from group account director having joined the agency in 2012 after a four year stint at DDB paris running the global Unilever account.

On the promotion Gregorio said: “During his two years at Arnold Furnace Michael has continued to perform at an exceptional level, with clients and colleagues all benefitting from his input. He deserves this promotion and no doubt will continue to rise and shine.”

Burnap is a new arrival at the agency,  joining the agency from BMF where she was for five and a half years. Tom Spicer has been with the agency since October 2010 first as a national creative director before being made ECD in July 2012.

Greogorio said: “I’m delighted that Thomasine has joined the agency. Her experience and attitude will make a positive difference to the agency and clients. Tom Spicer has done an amazing job leading the agency’s creative output and now, together with Michael and Thomasine, I have great faith that this executive team will take the agency to further heights.”

Tony Singleton departed the agency in May to launch Mr Wolf with former JWT general manager Richard Carr.

Arnold Furnace clients include Ambi Pur, Duracell, Cenovis, Jack Daniel’s and Oral B.
