Handsome appointment!


We are delighted to announce the appointment of former managing director of SuperCommunications, and previous head of marketing at Sky Sports, Joe Bachle-Morris to lead Handsome as MD.

Joe's key focus is the strategic growth and operational aspects of Handsome as well as developing new and existing client relationships. His appointment comes as we look to build on our award-winning work and capitalise on opportunities within the UK, internationally and in the world’s fastest-growing economies such as Sub-Saharan Africa.

Joe says why he joined Handsome; "I have always thought that you need to surround yourself with the best in the business. Every day. And if you can't see them, go and find them. Having spent the majority of my time working in and running some of the most creatively awarded agencies in London, I wanted to get closer to the core brand truth of businesses. In branding and design you get that, working higher up the tree to truly help shape brands and the engagement with their customers. This is what Handsome does instinctively, they do great work for big companies, seeking to find the brand truth and then simplifying and amplifying that truth. It is this purity of approach that I was looking for."

Ian Haughton, creative director and founder of Handsome, said; "We are ready to move from being a good business to a great one, and Joe is the person I’ve been looking for to drive this forward. It wasn't just his impressive track record though. It was Joe the person. He is straight talking, has strong opinions and is a champion of great creative work. I know that he will make an immediate difference to our business."

"Our aim is to help brands and businesses grow and differentiate themselves in an increasingly competitive world. We do this by helping them find their true voice, enabling that brand to communicate with confidence and clarity."
