On-site specialist OLIVER has appointed Proximity London Creative Director, Rob Kavanagh, to take on the role of Executive Creative Director on a number of key client accounts.
Kavanagh will report in to OLIVER Group UK’s chief creative officer Brian Cooper on a remit to extend the agency’s integrated and CRM expertise across the agency’s client roster, as well as lead creative capability across his client portfolio.
Kavanagh brings two decades of experience at agencies that include Harrison Troughton Wunderman, Ogilvy & Mather, and Craik Jones. Most recently at Proximity London, Kavanagh was instrumental in delivering the multi award winning work for The Economist. As well as spearheading highly successful campaigns for TV Licensing, RNLI and Lloyds banking.
Cooper said: “Rob is a modern day creative; his knowledge spans digital, copywriting and branding, all highly sought-after capabilities as our industry continues to transform. With more and more of our clients giving data-led visions pride of place, we want the talent to meet these needs head on.
“Rob’s expertise will help us to balance creative and digital to bring our clients’ solutions to life.”
Kavanagh added: “The transformative creative work that I’ve been a part of over the years has always started way upstream at the business problem, rather than the brief. That’s where Oliver plays every day with our clients. The on-site Oliver model is really breaking the agency mould – and it’s what excited me about this role.”
OLIVER has bolstered its creative offering with the arrival of new global chief creative officer, Rod Sobral. He will be responsible for the agency’s creative output across global clients.
