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

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

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

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.
