Dente moves from London agency Grayling, where he led campaigns for clients including The 2014 Ryder Cup, Gordon’s and Pringles.

Aberfield works with clients such as First Direct, Harrogate Spring Water and Quintessential Finance Group.

Phil Reed, managing director, said: “It’s difficult enough to find one person who you know will make a significant impact.

“To find two as talented as Christian and Rebecca is a huge coup for us. It says a lot about the reputation we have in the industry.”
