MML hires Mahoney and Amadeo to lead new creative line-up

Mustoe Merriman Levy has hired the former CDP creative directors

Mick Mahoney and Andy Amadeo to be its joint creative directors.

The pair, who left CDP when it announced its merger with travissully in

October, will start at Mustoe Merriman in December. The agency's most

senior creative pair, Al Morrice and Paul Diver, have left to find new

jobs. The agency's creative director and co-founder, John Merriman, will

become creative partner, with the day-to-day running of the creative

department up to Amadeo and Mahoney.

Mustoe Merriman has also promoted Jon Howard-Spink to be its planning

director after two years at the agency. He was previously the director

at the brand consultancy Icon and was a board planner at Saatchi &


Mahoney and Amadeo were hired by CDP as joint creative directors in

January as it grappled with the task of reinventing itself in the midst

of dwindling creative work and an unstable department.
