Team Air will bring together staff from Grey’s London and New York offices, Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R, Geometry Global, Hogarth and TNS.

Chris Hunton will run Team Air. He was most recently the head of Team Land Rover at WPP. Land Rover moved its global digital and creative business to Spark44 in March.
