He will also assist with staff training and technical solutions.

Graham Ebbs, managing director at Jungle Studios said: "Jungle is continuously looking at ways to grow and expand the business.

He is also a fantastic sound designer and will be a great asset to the team."

He spent over a decade there before moving to Triangle as head of sound. Most recently he has been a senior sound designer at Grand Central Sound Studios.

Ben has worked in a variety of areas including TV, cinema and radio advertising; audio books and feature film and his client list includes high-profile directors such as Si and Ad, Sam Brown, Tim Hope, Daniel Kleinman, Declan Lowney, Guy Manwaring, Ed Morris, Sam Walker and Traktor, to name a few. In addition, he has crafted the sound on award-winning spots including: T-Mobiles' 'Welcome Back' and The Imperial War Museum's 'Flight of the Stories'.

Other notable projects include the Lego Batman promo for Sky; various Meerkat adverts for Compare The Market and Warburton's 'The Giant Crumpet Show' featuring The Muppets.

Commenting on his appointment, Ben Leeves said: "Jungle is an exciting company with state of the art facilities and an enviable client list. I look forward to working with the team to build on this and expand into new areas."

Jungle has recently provided sound design for a wide range of brands including Aldi, Argos, BBC, British Gas, Lexus, NatWest, RNLI, Sainsbury's and Vodafone.
