Touch Associates has hired Andrew Wilkie to be its global creative and engagement director.

For more than 15 years Wilkie worked in advertising at Saatchi & Saatchi, from graduate to managing director of the Agency’s global content division. He set up his own communications consultancy in 2014 to champion creative and disruptive thinking.

Touch is not implementing any immediate organisational design changes and will allow Andrew to explore the right path for the agency to take in the coming weeks.

"Creativity is the heart and soul of Touch, and Andrew’s vitality and experiential mindset will help Touch achieve its next chapter of growth, said Mike Ford, board director of Touch.

"We are establishing full-service creative excellence and, in doing so, we will broaden our offering and maximise our impact and revenue generation with clients by getting closer to their story and the heart of their brand. This in turn will strengthen our position with our core and future clients. We are delighted to welcome Andrew to the Touch family."

"Touch are on a fantastic journey and their success is evident for all to see and I look forward to joining the team," added Wilkie.

"I look forward to championing creative thinking and helping amplify possibility for the current and future client base."
