The pair have worked as a creative team for seven years. They join WhiteGrey after spending nearly two years as creative directors at CHE Proximity.

Katie Firth, national managing director of WhiteGrey, said the appointments of Fitzgerald and Hill would help the business and its clients.

“Adding new clients to our burgeoning roster means a raft of new and different business problems to solve, so having a new set of creative minds to join our already talented team is brilliant for both WhiteGrey and its clients. Garret and Joe are a team with ambition; they revel in responding to client briefs and with a skillset combining creative and technology, and we love the creative firepower their dual appointment brings to WhiteGrey,” she said in a statement.

“Not only are they award-winning creatives, they are decent humans who are truly passionate about creating the best-of-the-best campaigns to grow our clients’ businesses.”

Hill stated: “WhiteGrey has creative pedigree, contemporary instincts, and a palpable sense of momentum and clarity – we’re honoured and thrilled to be joining the team.”

Fitzgerald added: “Joe and I have always held WhiteGrey’s work in the highest regard. The opportunity to join a talented team with someone as passionate and dynamic as Katie at the helm is something we’re very excited about. It’s a great time to be coming on-board – we can’t wait to get stuck in.”
