Fold7 welcomes 4 new creatives

With the flurry of success we’ve experienced over the past few months, welcoming the likes of Magners, Amazon’s Audible, Wonga, Eat and Doddle to our roster of clients, we’ve hired a new wave of creative talent to help us maintain our ambition of being the destination agency for clients.

Leading the way are D&AD award-winning duo Jim Seath and Rod Elms. Prior to joining Fold7, Seath was a creative director at Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO, where he worked on the Tourism Australia, EDF, Galaxy and Heinz accounts, while Elms was a senior creative at Saatchi & Saatchi, with previous stints at Crayon and TBWA\London.

Also joining the line-up are mid-weight creatives, Lucy Aston and Ben Ducker, who make their way from VCCP. Our client account handling team follows suit with three new hires, including group account director Philip Higham who joins from WCRS, account director Victoria Heywood who leaves RKCR Y&R, and account manager Alistair Wilson.

They join Fold7 at an extremely exciting time, challenged with keeping the fire burning as we continue to build on the momentum from our string of new client wins and awards, most recently picking up a Clio award for our Carlsberg campaign ‘Probably the best poster in the world’.

“It’s great to be adding to the team at this stage in the agency’s growth and welcoming this fantastic new talent into the fold,” comments Ryan Newey, our founder and exec creative director. “We’ve been looking for blinkers-off agency and creative experts who can easily slip in to Fold7’s 21st-century approach to advertising. He adds, “These new squad additions mean that we can continue to deliver exceptional creativity at a pace to match 21st-century consumers”
