The move follows the launch of an Experience division at JWT New York and the new unit will be made up of individuals from a range of technology backgrounds who will work closely with the agency's other key departments.

Maciek Gorzkowski, the founder of the digital agency Play, has been hired to lead the offering and joins JWT Experience immediately.

Gorzkowski formed Play in 2005 as a joint venture with M&C Saatchi and has since helped it secure new business from brands including Luco­zade, Foster's and Transport for London.

Gorzkowski said: "I want to help JWT Experience become the linchpin for brands wanting to maintain mean­ingful interactions with their customers."

JWT Experience in London will work closely with the New York unit to help develop JWT's digital offering on a global scale, servicing its existing clients as well as helping the agency to attract new brands.

Guy Hayward, the chief executive of JWT UK, said: "Digital technologies provide a huge opportunity for brands to truly engage with their consumers, and our Experience department will enable JWT to drive brands forward in a contemporary and innovative fashion."
