Engine MHP + Mischief make a key digital hire

ENGINE MHP + Mischief appoints Mario Theodorou as Digital Director. The new role will focus on digital innovation and multi-channel content

MHP and Mischief have strengthened their combined digital capabilities with their first major hire since coming together earlier this year.

Mario Theodorou has taken up a new role as Digital Director within the newly formed Creative Services team and will be responsible for driving digital innovation across MHP + Mischief’s client portfolio.

In this role, he advises clients on new ways of communicating with audiences to adapt to the restrictive environment created by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Theodorou previously served as Head of Digital at News UK and as Managing Partner at Addiction London, before its acquisition by Mission. During his career, he has developed digital strategies for clients including B&Q, VOSS, Coca-Cola, Nomad Foods, Royal Mail, Post Office, KPMG and BAE Systems.

A novelist and writer for TV, film and radio, Theodorou will also play a leading role in the agency’s push into multi-channel content, building on the success of recent campaigns for clients including Astra Zeneca, Huawei, and Southampton FC.

Mario will report into Gemma Irvine, Head of Creative Services.

Alex Bigg, CEO of ENGINE MHP + Mischief said:

“Mario’s arrival is a big moment for us. He’s the first major addition to our newly-formed Creative Services team, which sits at the heart of our business and serves all of MHP and Mischief’s clients. Mario’s blend of strategic consultancy and creative ethos makes him a perfect addition to our team.”

Mario Theodorou added:

“I’m thrilled to have joined such progressive and innovative agency group. We have a shared belief in the power of digital storytelling and the importance of behavioural science. I’m looking forward to working with all the teams, and clients, to see where I can add value and help push the boundaries of our work.”
