Slew of Creative Hires Announced at Boys and Girls
“We’re acknowledged leaders in our industry for providing Ireland and international clients with imaginative, creative solutions across advertising, digital, design and experiential so these important new hires will allow us to further build on that reputation as the business grows and expands further and we deliver the type of eye-catching work that engages consumers with brands across all platforms.”  

That’s according to Rory Hamilton, partner and executive creative director of award-winning Dublin-based creative agency, Boys and Girls commenting on a series of new hires including an award-winning Creative Director, a Cannes Lion winner and one of Ireland’s leading digital talents in addition to internal promotions.  

This comes at the same time as the announcement that Patrick Meade has been re-appointed by his fellow founding partners as Managing Director for the next four years. He will be responsible for the strategic development in the business both in Ireland and continental markets including the Caribbean and EMEA. Furthermore, the agency has hired an additional eight creative, account handling and operations professionals and made two internal promotions.

Founded in 2009 with the philosophy of “Daring Simplicity”, Boys and Girls believe that “Great Work, Works”.  That’s a positioning that resonates with clients.  2017 has been a busy year so far for the agency with new business wins from Ulster Bank, Jose Cuervo, Barnardos, Three Experiential and the Office of Government Procurement.

Get to know the new hires below.

A former digital creative director, Mark has previously worked with leading agencies including McCann Erickson, Publicis and Chemistry.

With a background across both Graphic Design and Art Direction—for agencies like Language and Publicis Dublin—he was worked on major brands including AIB, Cadbury, Meteor, TG4, Heineken, Tesco, Murphys, Tayto, and Renault.
