Newly promoted Chief Production Officers and Exec Creative Director

Mother has always backed creative talent in every discipline. Today, Mother London is announcing the promotions of Anna Murray and Emma Davenport; and Martin Rose to production and creative leadership roles.

Production has always been at the heart of Mother, and its importance and impact has never been greater. Mother has asked Anna Murray and Emma Davenport, the current Heads of Production, to step up into the new roles of Chief Production Officers. The duo have worked together for twelve years at Mother, in a partnership more similar to that of a creative team than the typical solo production leadership. They’ve been hands-on in realising much of the agency’s most celebrated work. Together, they will lead a team of over 60 to unify Mother’s making capabilities.

Anna Murray and Emma Davenport, Chief Production Officers, said: “Our own growth here reflects the value Mother puts on making and its people; Production is a fundamental partner, bringing creative and resourceful thinking into making the best work we possibly can.Continuing our long-lasting partnership and having the opportunity to shape Mother’s future is something we’re proud to do.”

In creative, Mother has promoted Creative Director Martin Rose to Executive Creative Director. Martin built his creative journey at Mother, starting at the agency in New York in 2012 before relocating to London and working across the agency’s range of high-profile clients. During his ten years in London, Martin has been behind iconic Mother campaigns, from MoneySuperMarket Strut to Uber Eats’ most recent Cannes Lions Gold-winning Do Less. He will now lead some of the agency’s flagship brands.

Martin Rose, Executive Creative Director, added: “Before joining the Mother family 14 years ago, I lost my own. Although it will never replace her, it’s nurtured, guided, and made me who I am today. I look forward to many more years with my adopted Mum, making my own children proud.”

All three will report to Felix Richter, Chief Creative Officer and Partner of Mother, who commented: “Mother has always been about the collective. We’ve been blessed to have these three help build Mother for years and are excited for them to play an even bigger role in our next chapter.”
