Ehsrealtime has hired the former Brann London creative directors,
Brian Storey and Xanthos Christodoulou.
The pair join ehsrealtime as creative directors, reporting to Patrick
Collister, the executive creative director. They resigned from Brann in
August with the intention of joining a start-up agency backed by HHCL &
Partners, but this fell through as the downturn and account losses hit
Collister is conducting a restructure of the creative department at
ehsrealtime that will see Storey and Christodoulou work as part of a
"collegiate" of creative directors. The current creative directors at
ehsrealtime, Patrick Baglee and Trevor Chambers, are also joined by the
newly promoted Graham Dexter and Lu Dixon as creative directors.
Storey and Christodoulou joined Brann London in January 2000 and before
that worked at agencies including Craik Jones Watson Mitchell Voelkel,
FCA!, OgilvyOne and HPT Brand Response.
Collister said: "I'm really chuffed to get them. Brian and I have worked
together at Ogilvy, where he was a young art director winning awards for
WWF. With Xanthos it's typical that you need to hire a Greek to get
somebody who can write such brilliant English."
Storey said: "It's a great move for us. It's one of the best shops in
town with a strong creative reputation."
