Leo Burnett London Boosts Creative Department with New Talent
Leo Burnett London has invested heavily in its creative department, hiring a diverse range of talent from across the agency world.
Dan Fryer and Gate Lambert join Leo Burnett as a creative team from Fold7, where they worked on everything from experiential stunts to fully-fledged 360 campaigns for the likes of Disney, Gumtree, Carlsberg, Audible and, most recently, the ‘Check’ campaign for money.co.uk.
Charlotte Prince and Loriley Sessions arrive at the agency after gaining experience at The Corner and working on clients including Coca-Cola, L’Oreal, Fuller’s and Open Table.
The agency has also hired Gary Lathwell, as a Senior Creative. He brings more than 16 years experience at agencies including Havas, WCRS, Dare, and AMV BBDO, and Gareth Butters is joining the agency as an Art Director following a nine-year career at Grey, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, and VCCP.
The appointments, which follow that of Daniel Evans from We Are Social as Creative Director in April, reflect the agency’s drive under Sobhani to build a more diverse creative department with different skillsets and from different backgrounds, who best reflect the audiences the agency serves.
Sobhani said: “Talent is our life blood and we’re only as good as our people. Interesting and interested folks who will make us all better, agency and clients alike, and who will always put the audience first. Simply put, we’re always looking for people who get people, and who want to make stuff that’s going to make a real impact. Our newbies bring that in spades and we’re very chuffed that they’re joining us."
