Fallon McEliggott has revealed its first two London hirings this

week. Nikki Crumpton and Jill Linton are joining the two-month-old

agency from BMP DDB and M&C Saatchi, respectively.



Crumpton, a 1998 Campaign Face to Watch, has been a planner at BMP for

four years, working on accounts including the Ministry of Sound, PG Tips

and the Meat & Livestock Commission.



She began her career at Carlton, from where she moved to BMP’s media

department, before crossing over into account planning.



’Fallons caught me at the right time,’ Crumpton said. ’I’ve got to the

point where I have my own ideas and I was thinking about what I want to

do in advertising. It was a compliment to get the call and it’s good to

get into a new agency at the beginning.’



Crumpton worked with Richard Flintham and Andy McLeod, Fallons’ creative

partners, on the Ministry of Sound campaign which won an Account

Planning Group award last year.



’I love the way they work,’ she said. ’They are brilliantly

strategic.’



Jill Linton, who joined M&C Saatchi when it opened in 1995, has been

working on accounts including BSkyB and PPP Healthcare, and has been

acting in a consultancy role for the Ministry of Sound, whose account is

now handled by the Golden Square-based agency.



Michael Wall, a partner at Fallons, said: ’Jill is inventive and

open-minded - the account handler of the future. We’re very flattered by

her sheer will to work here.’



The two new recruits will work alongside the five partners - Wall,

Flintham, McLeod, Laurence Green and Robert Senior.
