Stein IAS, which has its European headquarters in Cheshire, is planning further international growth with new hires and promotions.

Dan Sheridan, who’s led the agency’s London office for the last 2 years has moved over to Paris, to become global account director. He will oversee the agency’s European expansion.

“With many of our London-based accounts increasingly looking to become the most important brand in their respective European markets, it is essential that we increase our on the ground support in key markets,” explained Rob Morrice, CEO of Stein IAS (EMEA).

“After successfully leading our team in London, it was clear from the outset that Dan was the ideal candidate to do just that.”

The agency has also appointed Sam Jordan, who’s been named as vice president, head of global accounts, based in New York.

Prior to joining Stein IAS, Jordan was managing director of Calling Brands, a global brand consultancy in The Engine Group.

“Having worked for over 16 years with some of the largest brands across the globe (8 in B2B), devising and implementing brand and integrated marketing strategies, Sam is well positioned to advise our global client base as to how we can help make their brands the most important in their markets,” added Morrice.

“The addition of Sam further reinforces our aim to increase the agency’s international footprint and forge the important partnerships we need to enhance our capabilities and global standing.”
