Agency of the year

Steve Stretton takes up the reins

Who better to step in as our interim Executive Creative Director than the famously down to earth, roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-stuck-in Steve Stretton?

One of the most experienced, respected, gifted and awarded creatives in London, Steve is a regular in the Campaign Top 10 rankings and has been a judge on pretty much every creative award panel known.

Of course, he is best known as a cofounder of Archibald Ingall Stretton. His career started as an art director at BBH’s marketing agency Limbo in the 1980s before he went to Evans Hunt Scott (Now Havas EHS) where he met Messers Ingall and Archibald.

All this experience is proving invaluable as he shapes Proximity London’s creative work. After a sterling year for awards in 2012 he is keen to see us build on that success. As agency CEO Mike Dodds says, “There is no-one I would trust as much to manage and inspire our creative department during this key interim period.”
