Sheffield agency Rise at Seven has appointed Joe Goulcher as creative director.

Goulcher was most recently Head of Content at Saatchi & Saatchi and has also worked for M&C Saatchi and Moonpig.

He'll be based in the agency’s London office and tasked with "putting search-first creative campaigns in front of a global audience".

Goulcher said: "After over a decade in PR, social and creative, I'm absolutely delighted to be part of one of the most exciting new agencies in the world. The team are incredibly talented and together we're going to shake up the industry. I can't wait to show everyone what we're capable of."

Rise at Seven, founded by Carrie Rose and Stephen Kenwright who take up new roles as CEO and COO respectively, launched in June 2019 and has grown from two to 50 staff in just 15 months.

It works with with clients including Missguided, Parkdean Resorts, GoCompare, House of Fraser, Made.com and MyProtein. The agency has grown 210% since May.

Rose said: "Speaking to creative directors from some of the most famous agencies in the country made us realise that bringing in a big name whose bread and butter is TV or print won’t take us to the next level - we needed someone who thinks like us, a big name who instead has a mind for grabbing attention on social and across digital.

"Joe is that person - I remember his work on Moonpig and Playstation and it’s so obvious to us how he can take our search-led campaigns and make them disrupt the entire industry."
