Peck, who had worked at McMenemy Hill for several years before the agency went into administration this summer, will head up a new internal creative resource at First Protocol.
"We already had a producer in place and could provide production services, but we had no resources for designing web and hard copy collateral so have always outsourced those," said First Protocol managing director Mark Riches.
The agency's decision to bring creative services in-house was in response to clients' changing needs. "For us to compete equally with our competitors, we have to have more services in-house," added Riches.
"It's very difficult to find a good creative director in London, and while it was very sad that McMenemy Hill has closed after 20 years, it's great we have been able to take Andrew on board."
As well as creative and design services, Peck will also head up virtual conferencing at First Protocol to advise clients that are considering trialling the technology.
Peck is the second employee First Protocol has recruited from McMenemy Hill. Tayrn Fulton-Hart also joined the agency recently to head up its BT account.
