The Leith Agency promotes Troy Farnworth and Phil Evans to creative directors

The Leith Agency has promoted Troy Farnworth and Phil Evans as its creative directors to lead the agency’s creative offer.

The pair will be the first creative chiefs at the agency since the departure of long-standing creative director Gerry Farrell midway through 2014 with the department having since been run by a number of creative heads, including both Evans and Farnworth.

Richard Marsham, managing partner of The Leith Agency, said: “We’re delighted to announce the appointment of Phil and Troy to the position of Creative Directors at The Leith Agency. They bring with them a potent mix of home-grown talent, commitment, passion and bags of potential. This is an important time for Leith as we look to further expand our creative ambition and Phil and Troy will play a major part in helping to deliver on that ambition.”

The pair will oversee the agency’s client roster including Dobbies, The Scottish Government, First Great Western, Irn-Bru and Drinkaware.
