Digitas Adds Creative Vets

NEW YORK Digitas said it has hired a husband-and-wife creative team, part of the digital and direct agency’s expansion into more brand-building work.

The Boston-based agency named Graham Mills senior vice president and creative director, and Jack Nolan vice president and associate creative director. They report to Digitas global executive creative director Mark Beeching, and both Mills and Nolan are based in New York.

“As we take on more and more brand building for our clients, it’s powerful cross-channel ideas that increasingly differentiate Digitas,” Beeching said in a statement.

Mills and Nolan were lured to Digitas following a stay at Publicis Groupe’s Arc Worldwide, where from 2002 to 2004 they were joint executive creative directors in London. They have a combined 40 years experience, including stints at WPP Group’s OgilvyOne from 1994 to 1999 and Impirc from 1999 to 2002.
