MRM Meteorite this week announces that it has appointed Nicky Bullard as Chairman and Chief Creative Officer. Bullard joins from LIDA/M&C Saatchi where she served as Executive Creative Director.
Debbie Smith, CEO, MRM Meteorite, said, "We are truly excited to have Nicky join us. Her record and abilities place her at the top of the league as a true creative talent and inspiration. Our strong growth of over 50% in the last three years has given us the opportunity to have someone of Nicky's creative leadership on board, making sure our product and reputation continue to improve."
Bullard will be joining the two founders, Debbie Smith and Hugh Bishop, to head up the agency, working alongside Chris Whitson, the recently appointed Chief Strategy Officer, and Managing Director Oliver Foot.
In her five years at LIDA's creative helm, Bullard has grown the agency's creative reputation through numerous awards, championed the Direct discipline and also helped the agency win Campaign's Customer Engagement Agency of the Year title twice, also coming in as a close runner-up this year.
Bullard said, “I've had a fabulous 15 years at LIDA, but this is an opportunity I simply couldn't turn down. MRM Meteorite is an agency that is clearly putting creativity at the heart of its business. It's always been quietly brilliant. My job is to turn the volume up.”
Rob Reilly, Global Creative Chairman, McCann Worldgroup said, “We are focused on Integrating all of the unique creative offerings of MRM across all of the McCann Worldgroup agencies. Adding talents like Nicky in London along with the recent addition Sung Chang in NY to the senior creative leadership team at MRM expands our ability to deliver across platforms and clients.
