Mother has hired Spotify executive Oriel Davis-Lyons as chief creative officer of its New York office.
Davis-Lyons replaces Corinna Falusi, who departed the agency in June. He has been at Spotify since 2020, most recently serving as head of creative for podcasts. Prior to that, he held creative roles at Droga5, R/GA in the U.S. and Colenso BBDO and Special Group in New Zealand.
He will join the Mother New York leadership team in January and will work in the agency's Brooklyn-based office alongside Teri Brady, who has been promoted to managing director from her previous role heading up client services. Davis-Lyons will report to Chief Creative Officer of Mother U.S. Joe Staples while Brady reports to President and Partner Teri Miller, who joined in May from 72andSunny.
