As Saatchi & Saatchi's new CMO EMEA, Andrew Lord will be working closely with CEO EMEA, Simon Francis, driving growth across the EMEA region.

Lord began his career in advertising at Saatchi & Saatchi London, where he started as an Account Director running high profile accounts including Procter & Gamble's Oil of Olay and Visa International.

In her new role as Market Development Director, Toyota Europe, Clare Shaw will be responsible for managing the Toyota Business for Saatchi & Saatchi across Europe, reporting to Giuseppe Caiazza, Managing Director Automotive Business Saatchi & Saatchi EMEA.

Shaw's appointment follows the steady consolidation of Toyota's business across the Saatchi & Saatchi network. The Agency now serves Toyota in 14 key markets throughout Europe, including the UK, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain.

Shaw said: "I am excited to be joining this fantastic team at this time and hoping to build upon the success and growth they have recently achieved."

Shaw joins Saatchi & Saatchi's EMEA team from YR Brands where she has been EMEA Consumer Business Director Team Dell since 2008. Prior to this, Shaw held senior positions with RKCR/Y&R, directing key automotive accounts including Global Business Director Land Rover, UK and Hertz Europe.

Saatchi & Saatchi EMEA CEO, Simon Francis said on the appointments: "We are delighted to welcome Clare and Andrew to the Saatchi & Saatchi EMEA team. Both are fantastically talented, experienced, masters of their craft. I know they will prove inspirational for our teams internally as well as valuable partners for our clients across the network."
