In his new role, Harman-Turner will lead the Kimberley Clark business which includes Andrex and Kleenex.

Having taken a freelance contract with FCB London mid last year, he’s worked on several FCB London clients from Government to FMCG and has already made a big impression within the agency.

Katy Wright CEO FCB London, said: “Anyone that’s met Kyle, spent time with Kyle will know his passion and commitment to creativity is second to none.

“Everything comes from a good place and we often found ourselves saying I couldn’t imagine FCB without Kyle.

“His experience, his energy in everything he does, inside and outside of work makes him a great fit for FCB and our clients – but more than that, he’s a wonderful human, and wonderful people are always welcome here, we can’t wait to formalise this partnership.”

Harman-Turner spent seventeen years at Mother across the London and New York offices.

He was behind campaigns including MoneySuperMarket’s hugely popular, multi-award-winning ‘Epic Strut’ with his then creative partner, Martin Rose.

In that time he rose through the ranks to become a co-Founder and ECD of Mother offshoot, ‘The Or’.

Work led by Harman-Turner included the launch of an immersive driving experience by the Jaguar Land Rover Group, ‘The Out’, where the public could book to have themselves “kidnapped” from their everyday lives by actors wearing neon balaclavas.

More recently, he attained a Business Sustainability Management qualification from the University of Cambridge and founded Climate Clubs – A creative collective using the cultural power of football to tackle climate issues.

Climate Clubs’ first project redesigned football club flags through a lens of climate change and was exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts with all profits going to relevant climate cause.

As part of an agreement at FCB, Climate Clubs will continue to operate with a range of existing clients including Warner Music and Green Football Weekend, with dedicated time for purpose based creative work set aside annually.

Harman-Turner is also a Summer School Tutor at Central Saint Martins.

Owen Lee, CCO FCB London, said: “We’ve been lucky enough to work with Kyle for the last 8 months and he’s demonstrated unbelievable energy, passion and talent.

“With Kyle in the building, we feel confident our work will go to the next level. And he achieves all this without a hint of ego.”

Kyle Harman Turner, Creative Partner & ECD at FCB London, said: “I’m humbled that Katy, Owen, Ben, and the wider FCB team have invited me into their gang with such love and positivity.

“The people we work with are so important in shaping how we feel each and every day. At FCB, I’ve felt excited about what we create together and I think that’s reflected in the work we’re making for Andrex.”
