Davis will oversee the London and Frankfurt offices, as well as creative work for the agency's Kia Motors Europe account, reporting to chairman and chief creative officer, David Angelo.

He most recently worked as creative director on Volkswagen at Deutsch LA.

David & Goliath opened its London office in spring 2009, bringing in Frazer Jelleyman as its first executive creative director. Jelleyman left earlier this year to pursue other opportunities.

Also joining as creative directors of the London office are Rob Porteous and Dave Askwith, who have recently been freelancing, having previously worked at Saatchi & Saatchi on clients such as Iams and Comet.

They replace Ben Callis and Justin Barnes, who joined when the London agency opened.
