Joshua creative director Broadhurst leaves in shake-up

LONDON – The Joshua creative director, Steve Broadhurst, has left the agency as part of an ongoing shake-up of its creative department.

Broadhurst, a former WWAV Rapp Collins creative director, left Joshua with no permanent job to go to.

Broadhurst joined in April 2004. He was one of a series of high profile appointments made by the former Joshua executive creative director Mitch Levy, whose objective was to strengthen the agency's integrated offering.

As Joshua's discipline mentor (equivalent to creative director), he looked after several teams and business sectors.

He worked alongside Brian Storey and Xanthos Christodoulou, who were hired by Levy in late 2003 but left this summer to launch a start-up.

At the same time, Levy moved to a two-day week as the global creative director on Swatch in July. Rod Clausen and Christian Clarke were promoted to joint executive creative directors in his place.

To make up for the losses, Joshua has recently made a number of hirings to work across its direct and advertising disciplines.

Louise Day and Rachel Robinson, a former Campaign Faces to Watch team, have joined from Rapier. Chris Dickson and Gideon Toads, who have been freelancing at Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO, have joined to boost the agency's above-the-line credentials.
