McCann Worldgroup agency, McCann Manchester, has appointed Dan Noller as Digital Creative Director.
Noller, joins following an eight-year stint at AnalogFolk where he worked with brands such as Unilever, Sainsbury’s and BT.
McCann Manchester’s digital and social offering McCann LIVE, has doubled in size over the last 12 months and the agency has created standout work across digital and social channels over the past year, with #FreeCuthbert for Aldi capturing the nation and scooping a Silver at Cannes Lions, the Master of Marketing award by Marketing Week and most recently a Campaign BIG. Noller’s appointment will build on the agency’s success and deepen capabilities in this area.
Noller will report into McCann Manchester’s Chief Creative Officer, Dave Price and Executive Creative Director, Imogen Tazzyman.
Commenting on the appointment, Karen Buchanan, CEO at McCann Manchester said: “Delivering best in class creative across digital and social channels continues to be a strategic priority for us in Manchester and having Dan on board will play a major role in delivering that.”
On joining, Noller said: “McCann works with some fantastic clients, has a brilliant culture and a real appetite for innovation. I’m looking forward to bringing my digital thinking to the party and helping to create integrated work that connects across all disciplines, driving performance and fame for clients.” He added: “The speed at which consumers have adopted new digital behaviours has been unprecedented and this leap forward has created countless interesting and innovative ways that brands can creatively interact with audiences.”
Dave Price, CCO said: “Dan will bring a fresh perspective to our digital work. He’s a great problem solver and has created some first class award winning campaigns. But most importantly he produces fame-driving work and we’re going to give him the room to do plenty more of that.”
Noller will also join the agency’s Diversity, Equality & Inclusion Council to focus on a number of initiatives to help drive awareness of the creative industry amongst under-represented groups in the region.
