Facets Creative appoints new CEO and Executive Creative Director
September 2017 – Following on from an announcement by Michael Aldridge, Chairman of the Board, at the Company of Master Jewellers’ (CMJ) AGM in August that its subsidiary companies would be reviewed to ensure their sustainability, effectiveness and profitability, the decision has been made to appoint Lynton Heath as CEO and Executive Creative Director of Facets Creative.
The digital side of the Facets Creative business will continue to be headed up by Steve Jones.
Lynton has strong credentials and a wealth of experience holding posts at five top 10 global agencies as an award-winning Senior Creative Director including Ogilvy & Mather, McCann, MullenLowe, FCB and Leo Burnett. He also founded his own agency in South Africa which later merged to become Lowe Bull Truth (part of MullenLowe, London).
Lynton has worked on many high profile global brands including Unilever, Nescafe, Nestle, Wonderbra and Mercedes Benz, and has also specialised as a Senior Digital UX Copywriter, Content Editor and Manager. He has achieved many awards and accolades in New York, London and Cannes for his campaigns.
More recently Lynton has worked in the UK as a senior digital copywriter and content editor for City & Guilds, London and Marie Curie.
He was introduced to CMJ and brought in as a consultant to work with the marketing team on a project. While working with CMJ, Lynton has had the opportunity to be involved with Facets Creative and has been instrumental in completing an audit of the agency.
Lynton will take up the new post on 9 October 2017.
“I’m very excited about this upcoming challenge to take Facets Creative to the next level. I believe the agency has some very talented people and, with the right resources in place, has enormous potential,” Lynton said.
