Successful year for the agency finishes with key client team expansionmcm creative group, the creative communications specialist agency, has strengthened its client team with two new positions following a successful year for the business. The Kew-based agency has hired Laura Murphy as Client Director – New Business, while Jane Hill has been promoted internally to Client Director from Senior Project Manager.
Murphy joins from Line Up Communications, having been in the industry for 14 years, and will be reporting to Managing Director, Nicky Milligan. She previously worked with General Motors Europe and GlaxoSmithKline leading internal senior management conferences and strategy meetings in the UK, Europe and international divisions. Her role at mcm will involve approaching new client partners to help build on mcm’s successful growth this year.
The appointments follow a successful year for mcm creative group which has included several new team members across the company, a brand refresh, and prestigious industry award wins. Earlier this year, mcm bolstered its senior leadership team with the appointment of Karen Evans as Client Director, Brendan McCaul as Creative Services Director and Mark Nicholls as Creative Director earlier this year.
The business also announced a complete strategic brand refresh including a relocation of its headquarters from Hammersmith to Kew, which was especially designed to support their positioning as a leading multi-faceted marketing communications agency.
The year ended with the team celebrating several industry award wins including Event Magazine and C&IT for the work with John Lewis to celebrate its 150th anniversary. They were named Internal Communications Event of the Year, the first ever winner of the category, at this year’s C&IT Awards, and also took Creative Event of the Year for the same campaign at the Event Awards 2015.
Commenting on the appointments, Nicky Milligan, Managing Director at mcm creative group, said: “As a team, we are immensely proud of what we have achieved this year, the awards we have won, our growing team, and brand refresh all sets us in good stead for this success to continue. We’re tremendously excited about what the future has in store and look forward to a bright future for mcm and our client base.
“The appointment of Laura, and promotion of Jane, will play an integral role in delivering award-winning strategies for our key clients. Their appointments are a true reflection of the success we’ve enjoyed in the past 12 months, and they will be a key part in our future growth."
