Knox brings a wealth of experience leading creative agencies and in-house teams, having also served as Chief Creative Officer of Grey Greater China. where he was also a member of Grey’s Global Creative Board. He has judged and won at major award shows, including D&AD, Cannes Lions, Spikes Asia and Effies. His popular creative industry podcast, The Imposterous, returns for its third season in February.
Icon’s Group Managing Director, Joanne Painter, said Knox’s appointment will supercharge the agency’s already market-leading creative capability and output: “Michael reflects our evolving offer to the market. He is experienced but hungry, ambitious but humble, and above all, passionate about the work.”
