At BBH, she will report to John O'Keeffe, the executive creative director. She leaves glue this week, and will join BBH on 6 March as the head of digital production.
Glue has not yet found a replacement for Stanhope, who has been with the agency for three years.
The appointment comes shortly after BBH picked up a digital brief from Unilever to be the lead creative and strategic digital agency for Lynx/Axe. It is the first piece of digital business BBH has been awarded after a pitch solely against specialist agencies.
However, at the same time as it won the digital brief for Lynx, Unilever shifted the above-the-line account for Impulse out of BBH London and into the Argentinian creative agency VegaOlmosPonce.
O'Keeffe said: "Michelle brings a wealth of expertise in getting great ideas out across multiple platforms. We're delighted she's chosen to join us at such an exciting time for BBH and our industry."
