Holmes & Marchants International has made a number of senior appointments, from both within and outside the group.

Ian Kelly and Clare Poulson have joined as account directors, following moves from Tango Design and The Identica Partnership respectively.
The Australian energy start-up Edify was founded in 2015 but needed an identity to match its “established success” and wider work network.
