London – Hill+Knowlton Strategies (H+K) London has strengthened its creative offering by appointing Claire Holden to the newly created position of Creative Director.

Claire is the first internal appointment to H+K’s new Centre of Creative Excellence and she will work alongside Richard Millar, Global Chair Creative Strategy and Simon Shaw, Chief Creative Officer to develop H+K London’s creative offer. In addition to her new responsibilities she will continue to lead our adidas and LG accounts.

Claire joined H+K in 2002 and has over 12 years’ experience delivering strategic counsel and developing multi-channeled campaigns for a number of leading consumer technology, retail and fashion brands. She is also one of the youngest people to be made a Director in the company’s history.

Richard Millar commented, “Claire has demonstrated continual creative leadership on a number of key client accounts for H+K and is a passionate advocate for creative innovation within the agency.  I am delighted to appoint her to this new role where her creative insight and counsel will be a valuable asset to both the wider agency and our clients.”

Claire also said about her appointment, “Creativity is the lifeblood of any communications company, but never before has the opportunity been so broad, and exciting, for PR agencies. Brands are increasingly coming to the PR discipline with open, media neutral, briefs, asking how they should tell their story and engage their consumers. Being at H+K Strategies for close to 13 years I’m exceptionally passionate about the company and what we can deliver for our clients, and I’m thrilled to be given this role, at this exciting time. I look forward to working with Richard and Simon to develop the first Centre of Creative Excellence and grow H+K’s creative culture.”
