Phillips, who takes up his new role on 1 September, will direct the creative teams for both the Golley Slater Advertising London and Golley Slater Digital divisions.

Working in advertising for more than 15 years, he has held senior creative positions at agencies including Euro RSCG Network, Delaney Lund Knox Warren & Partners and Tequila/TBWA.

His appointment comes just a few months after the commercial director, John Kinder, was promoted to managing director of Golley Slater Digital.

Golley Slater's chief executive, Chris Lovell, said: "We have taken our time in making these appointments. We have taken soundings from influential people in our industry.

"We are creating something special in London, which mirrors culturally our success across the other Golley Slater offices and disciplines in the UK."
