Previously executive creative director for the UK, McIlrath became Iris' chief creative officer in February this year.
He's now supporting and fronting some of Iris' eye-catching work from around the world.
He helped the New York team win Clio's "Creative Bowl" award for the Jeep "Portraits" Super Bowl ad. He also led creative on a campaign for fruit drink Purdey's starring Idris Elba reminding grown-ups they still have time to achieve their potential.
Meanwhile, Iris UK was named integrated agency of the year by Campaign at the end of 2015 and it was also named the best "#DoDifferent" agency at the Marketing Agencies Association's awards earlier this year.
