Holdens has announced a key promotion as part of its new creative leadership team.

The Manchester agency, which also has studios in Berlin and Barcelona, has promoted Ryan Gibson to creative lead from senior copywriter. He joins Daniel Thompson as creative lead. Both have been integral to the agency’s growth in recent years and together they will lead the creative direction of its clients and the agency.

Holdens was founded in 2011 by brothers Ted and Olly Holden with their late father and renowned creative director, Peter Holden, who passed away in 2018. Having both cut their teeth under Holden senior, Thompson and Gibson will now work together to drive the agency’s creative output forward and lead the wider creative team, as well as its freelance network.

The creative duo has already played a pivotal part in some of the agency’s early success this year, delivering a high-profile rebrand and website for the iconic Loch Ness Centre and helping to bring new clients on board such as Estée Lauder fragrance brand Le Labo, landmark Portsmouth visitor attraction Spinnaker Tower and Liverpool music production and sound design studio soda-sound.

Ted Holden, co-founder and managing director at Holdens, commented: “Daniel and Ryan have both been instrumental in getting the agency to where it is today and we have every confidence they will lead our creative department to deliver award-winning work.

“They’re both brilliant creatives in their respective fields but make a formidable pairing as a creative team and we’re very excited to see the direction they’re going to take the agency and our clients throughout the rest of this year and beyond.”
