So there’s been some pretty big news our end. The one and only Laura JB is embarking on a new creative challenge over at Grey (sob). She will, of course, be sorely missed.
Stepping into the limelight therefore is the talented and popular Jon Gledstone (and that’s not just because he makes the best cup of tea in the office…).
Our amazing Partner and ECD Jon will spearhead the agency’s creative product going forwards and continue to build on the creative team here at Mr. P (whilst juggling his other important commitment to the slightly less creative Arsenal team of course).
Jon has been running the day-to-day of the creative department and leading key clients for some time now, so it’s a natural evolution for him to become the creative face of the agency.
Mr. President chief Claire Hynes says: “I’m excited to continue working with our brilliant ECD Jon Gledstone on the next phase for Mr. President. Gregarious, eminently likeable and commercially whip-smart, Jon is a huge hit with the team and clients alike. He is an outstanding creative partner who we adore working with and we can’t wait to build on his talents and enthusiasm for making meaningful creative work.”
Jon says: “The last 7 years have been a lot of fun – and I’m really going to miss working so closely with LJB and tapping into all of those weird and wonderful thoughts she has in that bleached pink, blonde, no- it’s pink again head of hers. I wish her all the very best as she embarks on her next adventure and look forward to helping take Mr.P on ours.”
