Martinez told Campaign: "Lyle will focus on developing new revenue streams, working across all disciplines and looking at new opportunities. He’ll also work with Guy Murphy [the worldwide planning director] on driving the new JWTIntelligence."

Tick added: "The opportunity to write a new chapter in the story of a 150-year-old brand is really exciting."
