Allard-Johnson recruits top talent to Toronto office



    Ania Lindenbergs appointed general manager and executive vice president

    TORONTO, Oct. 2 /CNW/ - Allard Johnson Communications has made a
substantive addition to its Toronto office with the appointment of Ania
Lindenbergs (formerly Russocki) as general manager and executive vice
president. This hire reaffirms the agency's mission of recruiting the very
best possible talent to both its Toronto and Montreal offices.
    "We're thrilled to welcome Ania to the team," said Terry Johnson,
president and chief executive officer of Allard Johnson. "She is, quite
simply, one of the most talented advertising executives in Canada today. She
has a track record of overseeing strong, award-winning work that delivers
results for her clients."
    Prior to joining Allard Johnson, Ms. Lindenbergs held senior leadership
positions at several top agencies. Most recently, she served as president and
chief executive officer of Arnold Worldwide in Toronto. At Arnold, she was
promoted to CEO just three months after being hired as chief operating
officer. Previously, she was president of Gee Jeffery & Partners (GJP) in
Toronto. She also brings client-side experience, having been Assistant VP
Marcom at Rogers AT&T.
    "I was looking to be part of an agency with momentum and Allard Johnson
certainly fits the bill," Ms. Lindenbergs said. "Allard Johnson has an
entrepreneurial, innovative approach, great client relationships, and a proven
track record. That formula has resulted in success for both AJ and their
client partners. I look forward to joining this stellar organization."
    The agency celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2008 with over 120
employees and offices in Toronto and Montreal.
    "For five decades, we've made a difference for our clients and we are
looking ahead to a very bright future. Ania will be a big part of that," Mr.
