Shout it out: Holler Bolsters UK Management After Global Expansion
Dan Hocking and Paulo Nieddu to promoted to managing partners in London.
Leo Burnett Group London engagement agency Holler has boosted its management lineup following a global expansion of the social and mobile practice at Leo Burnett Worldwide.
Holler Operations Director Dan Hocking and Head of Planning Paulo Nieddu have been promoted to managing partners. Holler has also appointed Ben Swindell, founder of digital creative agency Blend, to the role of managing partner to complete the new management lineup.
The moves follow the appointment of former Holler Managing Partner James Kirkham to the global head of social and mobile for Leo Burnett. Will Pyne, co-founder of Holler and Simon Hankin, previously managing partner of Holler, will remain in supervisory roles to the U.K. business but will also work closely with Kirkham to guide global strategy and creative output for the brand.
Leo Burnett Social and Mobile, the division of Leo Burnett that houses Holler, has already opened offices in Chicago and further plans are underway for openings in San Francisco, Singapore, Brazil and Dubai.
