Advertising body selects Murphy as new president
The Institute of Advertising Practioners in Ireland (IAPI) has appointed Jimmy Murphy as its new President.
Mr Murphy, director at creative agency Publicis Dublin, said that he was assuming the Presidency at a time when advertising is under intense scrutiny on its business performance. Along with its new President, the IAPI has made several new appointments to its board including Fiona Field, deputy MD at Mediaworks, and Charlotte Baker, deputy MD at Dynamo. The industry body now has almost a 50/50 gender split on its board.
