LONDON: MHP Communications has poached Cohn & Wolfe's Will Spratt for a newly created corporate role as the agency seeks to develop its global expertise.
Spratt will join MHP as a director after spending four years in the same role at Cohn & Wolfe. He will report to Mark Cater, head of corporate at MHP, who also joined the firm from Cohn & Wolfe in 2011.
Cater put the appointment in the context of what he called the agency's "International ambitions."
"[Spratt's] significant experience delivering global campaigns for major blue-chip corporate clients makes him the ideal candidate to contribute at a senior level," Cater said.
Before Cohn & Wolfe, Spratt worked at GCI and The SPA Way, which has since rebranded as Spider.
