Delano W. Ladd New York Times March 2, 1983

Advertising; Farrell President Of E.B.W.

By Philip H. Dougherty (The New York Times); Financial Desk
March 2, 1983, Wednesday
Late City Final Edition, Section D, Page 17, Column 3, 497 words

RICHARD G. FARRELL has left Marsteller to join the venerable but smallish Edwin Bird Wilson agency as president and chief operating officer. He brings with him a large number of corporate contacts developed during the years as executive vice president in charge of businessto-business and corporate advertising at his former employer, a subsidiary of the giant Young & Rubicam. And those contacts have given him a certain endearing quality in the eyes of Delano W. Ladd, who bought a controlling interest in E.B.W. in the early 1970's. For the past seven years or so, Mr. Ladd has been pushing the shop beyond the bonds of bank-advertising specialist that had it billing only about $4 million after 55 years in business.
