Martha Riley Returns to BBH as Head of Creative

BBH has hired Martha Riley as the agency’s first head of creative. The newly created role will see Riley support chief creative officer Ian Heartfield in looking after the career management, progression and well-being of the agency’s 100-strong creative department.

She was Creative Director on the recent ‘Made by Britain’ British Airways centenary campaign, as well as the brand’s award-winning ‘boarding pass’ World Cup ad last year.
