EL SEGUNDO, Calif., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Alastair Green has joined Team One as executive creative director, digital, reporting to Chris Graves, chief creative officer.

In this newly-created position, Green will be responsible for inspiring and shaping the creative direction of the digital experiences the agency creates for its clients.

"Alastair is a relentless collaborator, and his passion for digital is contagious," said Graves.  "As an agency, we're not satisfied to just participate in the digital age, we'd prefer to lead. And Alastair is the embodiment of that kind of drive."

Green has been creating in the digital space for over 13 years, most recently at McCann Worldgroup in San Francisco; and prior to that, at Ogilvy, New York and London.  During this time, he has honed his skills developing campaigns for such clients as Microsoft, Cisco, Yahoo!, Nortel, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Ford, Kodak, Miller, American Express and Nestle.

His work has included pioneering efforts in social marketing, digital outdoor and digital video, and has been recognized by Cannes, The Clios, The One Show, London Advertising Awards, The Webbys, Communication Arts, DMA Echos, National and Regional Addys, DMA (U.K.), IAB Mixx Awards, and AdTech.

According to his bio, Green spends an average of 10 hours per day online, "reflecting a major cutback since meeting his wife who funnily enough he met in real life."
