18 Feet & Rising has appointed Paul Spriggs, a former regional director of JWT Australia, as its first chief operating officer.
Spriggs will join the agency's management team and board alongside chief executive Jonathan Trimble, executive creative director Matt Keon, strategy partner Rob Ward and creative director Anna Carpen following a number of new client wins.
Spriggs said: “18 Feet & Rising has some incredible clients, great talent at the helm and a reputation for delivering on the kind of bold creativity that solves business problems. It’s great to be coming in off the back of success, and I’m looking forward to using my expertise to further growth.”
Spriggs previously ran the New York client group for Fallon and led creative and media agencies for Kellogg's Australia and New Zealand before becoming regional director.
