Ad agency Johannes Leonardo has appointed Hope Nardini creative director. She will focus on the MassMutual account alongside creative director Kevin Watkins and will report to co-founders Jan Jacobs and Leo Premutico at the agency’s headquarters in New York.
Nardini joins the agency from McCann New York where she was responsible for the Verizon account among others. Last year, Nardini’s team created Verizon’s emotional “First Responders” Super Bowl spot.
Earlier Nardini served at agencies Leo Burnett and BBDO in Chicago.
The hire follows the recent appointment of Samira Ansari as JL’s new group creative director from Grey New York.
