LONDON — TBWA\Media Arts Lab London has hired Stephen Hancock, a global brand director at Microsoft, to help run its Apple account.

Hancock joins as the group creative director for the Apple business in Europe and the Middle East.

He will report to the agency’s chief creative officer, Duncan Milner, who is based in Los Angeles.

Hancock was the global director of brand communications at Microsoft Devices. Before that, he was a creative director at 180 Amsterdam and worked on retail design.

Tom Hares, managing director of TBWA\Media Arts Lab London, said: "It takes a very unique kind of craft and care to work on Apple and, after a long search, we found Stephen, who has both in abundance."
