180 hires two more senior staff to boost management team

The Amsterdam-based creative shop 180 has made two further key hirings in addition to its new associate creative director, by appointing a new head of account management and a director of planning.

Kieron Monahan joins as the head of account management from Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam, where he had worked on Vodafone. He was previously a partner at TBWA/London, where he ran the PlayStation group, and has also worked at M&C Saatchi and Grey London.

Josh Mandel joins as the director of planning from TBWA/Chiat/Day, where he worked on the Adidas and Energiser business.

He has also worked at Leagas Delaney San Francisco, and Goodby Silverstein & Partners.

The appointments come a week after the news that the agency has lured Andy Fackrell, the art director responsible for the Grand Prix-winning Nike "tag" spot, from Wieden & Kennedy to be its associate creative director.
