CHICAGO, Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Foote, Cone & Belding Communications, Inc. (NYSE: FCB) announced today that Patrick J. Coll has been named president of the company's Krupp/Taylor USA Division. Coll succeeds Robert Buckingham, who will leave Krupp/Taylor as planned later this year after an orderly transition.
Headquartered in Los Angeles, Krupp/Taylor provides totally integrated direct marketing services, from strategic planning and creative, through production, into the mail.
Coll, 44, brings experience ideally suited to the Krupp/Taylor operation. He comes to the agency from his previous position as executive vice president of operations for the Cooperative Marketing Company, a direct marketing firm in Rolling Meadows, Ill., where he also served as corporate secretary and a member of the board of directors. During his five-year tenure there, his responsibilities included overseeing creative and client services; printing and manufacturing; mail operations; database services; as well as the telemarketing subsidiary.
Prior to that, Coll was a vice president of Citibank Nevada, where he managed the operations and customer service divisions for the Western Region of Citibank's bankcard business. His experience also includes 12 years with Continental Illinois National Bank, culminating as vice president of operations and retail services.
"I'm elated by the opportunity to lead Krupp/Taylor through the 90s and by FCB's commitment to our future," said Coll. "Krupp/Taylor pioneered the concept of fully integrated direct mail marketing and has long been the premiere resource in the field."
Krupp/Taylor has major offices in Los Angeles, New York and Seattle. Foote, Cone & Belding Communications, Inc., ranks as the seventh largest worldwide advertising company and the third largest agency in the United States. Its network includes 176 offices in 40 countries, with worldwide billings, including Publicis-FCB European operations, totaling more than $5 billion.
