The department sees James Chittenden appointed as Chief Creative Officer, with decades of experience heading up global creative campaigns, while Joanna Wilby and Andrew Park take the roles of Executive Creative Directors. 

Jess Hyland, Managing Partner, has taken charge of unlocking growth potential for both existing clients and Team ITG across the creative services landscape.

Hyland has over 12 years’ experience working at Team ITG across leading brands including Renault, KFC and M&S, specialising in cross-sector creative and strategic client services.

Team ITG’s Creative Department will offer an integrated creative service for brands, producing eye-catching marketing campaigns using its state-of-the-art Capture facility and working alongside Creative Automation engine Storyteq to boost the go-to-market efficiency of campaign activations.

We’re going to be seeing a lot more collaboration between our amazing services teams in future.”

“James, Jess, Joanna, Andrew and the rest of the fantastic team contributing to our creative services have already achieved amazing results at Team ITG, and we’re excited to see our services taken to the next level and provide even greater support to our global clients.”
