Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R has promoted two of its award-winning senior creative teams to the position of creative directors.
Pip Bishop and Chris Hodgkiss and Phil Cockrell and Graham Storey will take up their new positions immediately. Robert Campbell and Mark Roalfe become executive creative directors.
Creative responsibility for the agency's accounts will be divided between the two teams in a bid to ensure that each piece of business receives the requisite amount of senior creative input.
Bishop and Hodgkiss joined Rainey Kelly in 1999 from TBWA/London and have worked on the agency's Marks & Spencer, Virgin Trains, Quorn and Lil-lets accounts. While at TBWA, the team was responsible for the Nissan campaign featuring spoofs of the 70s TV shows The Sweeney and The Professionals.
Cockrell and Storey left Simons Palmer in 1997 to join Rainey Kelly and have since worked on the agency's Virgin Atlantic, Toblerone, Scottish Courage and News International accounts.
While at Simons Palmer they won a gold Lion for their Nike 'marathon' poster.
The promotion of the two teams completes a series of hirings and promotions to 'partner' level across the agency's account management and planning departments. This development reflects the growth of the agency following the Y&R/Rainey Kelly merger.
