Top Banana has hired Richard Twamley as its new creative director. Twamley joins the agency from DRPG and has 20 years of experience in events.

He will be responsible for the creative direction of the agency in line with its current five-year strategy, as well as supporting the wider Top Banana team. 

Twamley said: "The opportunity to be somewhere that has an ethos and culture which matched my own personality and ambition was one I couldn’t refuse. It’s great to take some of the things I’ve learnt during my career into this role, but I’m also looking forward to new learning as well."

The agency is on a recruitment drive, having employed nine new team members in the last six months, across offices in London, Manchester the Midlands.

Richard Bridge, founder and CEO of Top Banana said: "We don’t just look for people who know what we know and do what we do, we really look for people who can add something new and exciting to the business.
