It looks like Ogilvy’s global planning director Colin Mitchell has a new right hand man as the agency’s announced that Russell Davies will take on the head planner role for Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Davies, who’s a contributor to Wired UK and Campaign as well as the author of the “As Disappointed As You Are” blog on the side, was once the global consumer planning director at Nike and had stints at W+K’s Portland and London offices, where he worked for clients including the aforementioned mega-brand as well as Microsoft and Honda.

According to Ogilvy, Davies will succeed John Shaw, who’s splitting this fall to take on the role of strategy and planning partner at U.K.-based consultancy Rapier.
