CHICAGO—Sue Farr, appointed in February last year as head of the European operations of Golin/Harris International is leaving the firm “by mutual agreement to pursue other interests.”
 
Barry Leggetter, currently deputy managing director, will replace Farr as managing director of the firm’s U.K. office, but the European regional director’s position will remain open. Leggetter, former joint managing director of Countrywide Porter Novelli in London, joined Golin/Harris in the U.K. earlier this year after working in the U.S. for two years.
 
“Our key priority is the U.K. market,” says Rich Jernstedt, CEO of Golin/Harris International. “As the economic climate improves. We’ll refocus on our aggressive acquisitions, which Sue helped design and lead.” When Farr took over as head of Europe, Jernstedt outlined a plan to build “the best network in Europe” over the next three years.
 
Farr was formerly the director of public service marketing at the BBC. She joined the corporation as its first professional marketer in 1993 and, by 1997, was responsible for the marketing of all its public service brands.
 
“I have enjoyed establishing Golin/Harris as a player to watch in the U.K. market,” said Farr. “I am a stronger manager as a result of working for Golin/Harris and having P&L responsibility for a group of European offices.”
