Creative team Ben Hartman and Neil Durber are joining 180 Amsterdam as senior copywriter and senior art director respectively, with their work primarily focused on the agency’s DHL account, acquired in January.

Hartman and Durber spent time at Leo Burnett, DMB&B, and BBH before moving to RKCR where they won awards for their work on Virgin Trains and Visit London. Joining them at 180 Amsterdam is former McCann Erickson Senior Copywriter David Chalu, who previously had done stints at BBH and Euro RSCG Wnek Gosper. All three appointments follow the hiring of Creative Director Galen Graham in September.

With renewed focus on the DHL account, ECD Al Mosley says, “Ben and Neil haven’t just got experience and talent, they’re also entrepreneurial. And David brings something totally different to the department. We expect big things from the next twelve months, so to have added exceptional creative skills to our armoury can only be a good thing.”
