Selmore has appointed Niels Westra and Jakko Achterberg as creative directors.

The pair join from DDB, where they worked as a senior team on accounts including Volkswagen and McDonald's. At Selmore, they will work alongside the creative partners Poppe van Pelt and Diederick Hillenius.

Meanwhile, Selmore's finance and operations director, Angelique de Hont, has been promoted to partner.
