Tin Man is bolstering its senior team with two new hires due to a series of wins and its continued growth.


Creative Director, James Hoyle, joins the senior team in May. Hoyle brings 20 years of agency experience, previously holding similar roles at MSL, Weber Shandwick and Fishburn.  He’s developed campaigns for the likes of HSBC, First Direct, ESSO, EY, Butlins and Durex, winning multiple industry awards, most notably for the Bisto ‘Spare Chair Sunday’ work.


Associate Director, Hannah Milne, also joins the Tin Man stable this month from Brands2Life where she led the work for Moonpig, Virgin Media, Match.com, Groupon and Barclays.  Previously she was at Mischief working across Unilever, The Football Association and National Trust.


Both Hoyle and Milnes will work alongside existing Creative Director, Paul Valentine, as well as Head of Planning and Strategy, Elly Kestenbaum, and Head of Client Services, Natalie Neave, further helping to cement Tin Man’s reputation as one of the most creative communication agencies in London.


Tin Man founder, Mandy Sharp, comments, “This, our fifth year, is already shaping up to be our most exciting in terms of growth, and we’re ready for the energy and expertise that James and Hannah will bring.  James will work with Paul on building our creative content and production offering, as well as conjuring further creative magic for our clients.  Hannah will be wrapping her arms around some of our cornerstone clients and leading them to achieve even greater results.”


Most recently Tin Man has been awarded work by Direct Line Group and Thomas Cook Airlines. The agency also works with Barclays, Unilever, Plenty of Fish, FOX TV, The Institution of Engineering and Technology, NOWTV and Ferrero.
