New Chair for 1576

Advertising agency 1576 has bolstered its resources by bringing in a new chairman in the wake of its recent expansion. Ron Hewitt, who is presently chief executive of Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce, is joining 1576’s board this month. It is a role reversal, of sorts, for Hewitt, who engaged the agency this year to refine the Chamber’s own marketing and advertising.
A former managing director of Kwik Fit Insurance, Hewitt will take a strategic look at 1576 which has doubled in size within the past 18 months after winning new business of the likes of the National Trust and visitscotland.
