Bloomberg Media is boosting its marketing services capabilities with a senior creative hire in Teddy Lynn, who joins as chief creative officer.

Lynn will now lead the global creative team, based out of New York, reporting into Bloomberg Media COO Jacki Kelley. He will be tasked with looking after the businesses team of creatives, designers and writers that service its B2B marketing clients, as well as being tasked with defining and sourcing feature content to expand Bloomberg Media’s influence, reach and revenue.

The move is part of a significant investment from Bloomberg Media into its services for brands. The appointment follows hot on the heels of another high profile hire. Bloomberg announced in October that Steven Feuling, former Vizeum CEO, had joined as global head of marketing services.
