Following formal pitches, Mecca Bingo is likely to make an appointment by the end of the year.
There is no formal incumbent, but Mecca Bingo has been working with Isobel on a project basis. Isobel created a recent ad for the brand that featured a woman in a lab coat introducing a man dressed as a cactus.
