Adams joins CHI next month and will be responsible for developing the agency's digital output, as well as creating new opportunities for existing clients.

The appointment comes as CHI looks to bolster its digital resource.

Last month, the agency won the pan-European digital advertising account for Lexus after a four-way pitch.

It has also recently won awards for its digital work for The Carphone Warehouse.

Adams will work closely with Thiago de Moraes, the digital creative director at CHI, and Ben Southgate, a planning director.

Under the terms of his contract, Adams is expected to assume partner status next year. He will report to Sarah Gold, CHI's joint managing director.

Adams joined Agency Republic in 2003 and has since worked on accounts including Diageo and Dunlop.
Before that, he was an account director at Zinc.
