Michael Murray departs Blammo

The former CCO and partner joins SapientNitro as its new CD.

SapientNitro has brought on board Michael Murray as its newest CD.

Murray joins the Toronto agency after spending two years leading Blammo’s creative offering as its CCO and partner. Prior to Blammo, he worked as VP/ECD at CP+B, and in senior roles at Taxi, Zig and TBWA.

“We are extremely excited to have Michael further expand the skills of our team here at SapientNitro,” said Michael Howatson, ECD at the agency. “He’s an ideal fit to the unique culture we are building to provide an amazing place to do innovative, boundary-breaking work where technology and story meet.”

Sapient has been boosting its creative ranks over the past year, first bringing on Howatson last March, followed by Chad Borlase as CD in May. Andrew Kirby rounded out the senior hiring spree last November, joining the agency as its VP client services.

More to come.
