McQueen joins McCanns Bristol as co-creative director

McCann Erickson Bristol has brought in three new members of staff, including a new joint creative director and head of copy.

Simon McQueen takes on the role as joint creative director and head of copy, joining from Brandspanking, a creative boutique offering he set up in Holland, where he worked for six years.

He has previously worked at Mother and AMV BBDO.

Meanwhile, Jon Dunbar (pictured) joins the agency as group account director, moving from McCann Manchster, and has been given the remit of driving brand strategy and integrated communications.

Finally, Lyanna Tsakiris (pictured) has been recruited as PR and social media account director, to offer strategic direction and integrated communications planning. As part of the agency's social media team, Lyanna will also provide social media marketing solutions for consumer and corporate clients.

Fraser Bradshaw, managing director of McCann Erickson Bristol, said: “We are delighted to welcome our new recruits to the agency. These very significant appointments demonstrate our ambitions for the future and highlight our commitment to delivering a highly effective integrated offering.”

Bradshaw recently restructured the operations at McCanns Bristol to create a 'more intergated' service.
