Christodoulou and Storey depart Brann to join HHCL venture

Brian Storey and Xanthos Christodoulou, the creative directors of

Brann London, have resigned.

The pair are in talks about joining HHCL & Partners' as yet un-named

direct marketing offering, which is likely to be launched by Tim Patten,

the former HPT Brand Response managing partner.

The resignation of Storey and Christodoulou seems to confirm HHCL's

plans to launch the Patten-led agency, after a period of


Storey and Christodoulou joined Brann London in January 2000. The agency

recently parted company with the managing director, Dennis Kerslake, and

has struggled to sustain a consistent management line-up and bring in

new business.

Before Brann, the creative duo worked at Craik Jones Watson Mitchell

Voelkel, FCA!, OgilvyOne and HPT Brand Response. They produced acclaimed

work for the Royal Mail and Granada.
