Initiative, the IPG Mediabrands agency, has appointed Nick Childs as global chief creative officer.
The agency said Childs was brought on board to oversee “creative story-building and trans-media content development.”
Jim Elms, global CEO of Initiative, said that Childs’ “exceptional talent and unique ability to craft stories that set brands apart will provide a huge boost to the agency.”
Previously, Childs was executive creative director at FleishmanHillard, part of Omnicom.
