Creative agency JDO, with offices in London and New York, has made two senior hires to its client services team followed an extended period of growth.

Peter Droy joins as Head of Client Services and Helena Graves as Client Business Director.

Droy has worked for some of the UK’s most prestigious design businesses, including Design Bridge and Brandhouse. He said: “JDO is a brand design agency of the highest calibre with a dynamic, professional and highly creative team.” 

Graves was formerly Senior Client Director at Design Bridge, working across the agency’s London, Shanghai and Amsterdam offices, helping to set up the firm’s Shanghai studio. She has previously held positions at Apple EMEA, Sony and Landor.

Working across a global roster of brands including Pond’s, Shell, Pepsi and Dove, JDO has delivered world-class strategic creativity with the belief that exceptional design has the power to change how people think and feel and what they believe.

The duo will drive JDO’s client services, further strengthening and nurturing existing relationships while looking to boost new business opportunities.

Helena Graves, Client Business Director at JDO, added: “I have three things I look for in an agency: great creative work, strong leadership and progressive company culture. JDO ticks all the boxes. I’m looking forward to getting started.”

Commenting on the new hires, Managing Director Fiona Florence said: “We want the best of the best and always aim to hire new team players who understand our vision and share our values and passion.

"I believe we’ve got two new crew who do just that and who are joining JDO at a really exciting time in our journey.”
