Paul Cotton will support Clifton as the new head of ideas following a successful run of award-winning work. Cotton will be focused on creative innovation, including supporting developments for Web 3.0.

The agency also promoted Jackson Holst to creative director, his second promotion with the agency in less than two years. Holst has led some of the agency’s best creative in the last couple of years for clients such as EY, Koala and General Motors Speciality Vehicles.

Paul’s love for new technology, storytelling ability, and record of award-winning work makes him the perfect steward for a new era of PR and Brand Experience ideas. And Jackson brings in a fresh perspective and creativity that consistently delivers extraordinary results.”

He added, “I’m thrilled to announce these well-deserved promotions. Thanks to this team and the fresh new talent they’ve attracted, we’ve continued to punch above our weight creatively.”
