Nate Thompson, vice-president and creative director at Jack Morton Worldwide, has joined Amplify as creative director.

He reports to executive creative director Jeavon Smith, leaving Jack Morton after six years. Smith joined Amplify in 2017 after a nine-year stint at Jack Morton.

Thompson has worked with brands including Google, Jameson and Samsung. 

Meanwhile, Amplify has hired Paige Lewis as business lead and Laura Shalders as senior project manager. Shalders moves to London from Australia, where she has been working as a freelancer. Separately, Anneka Lettunich also joins Amplify’s Australian office as art director.

Amplify’s founder, Jonathan Emmins, said: "As all businesses, we're only as good as the talented individuals that choose to call Amplify home. As well as boosting our reputation and experience in 2018, we were lucky enough to win 13 new clients last year. This, combined with establishing our Australian office, resulted in growth of 92%, with total billings rising from £13m to £25m.

"This creates amazing opportunities for old and new Amplifiers alike. Nate, Paige, Anneka and Laura join our current team of superstars and all will be vital to the next stage of our creative and commercial development."
