New Planning Director among three hires at Alchemy Media
El Long (pictured, centre) has joined Harrogate-based Alchemy Media as its new Planning Director as the agency plans for growth.
She joins alongside two other new appointments - with Georgia Foster as Account Manager and Becca Keenan as Media Assistant - at the agency, which provides independent media buying services to clients.
Stepping into the role vacated by Karen Light in July, Long will be responsible for strategic planning across key accounts, as well as working across pitches and business development, and has experience at PHD, Dentsu Aegis and Mediaworks.
El Long said: "Alchemy have a refreshingly honest and straightforward approach which runs throughout the business, and some fantastic clients on their roster which I'm really enjoying getting to grips with. It's great to join at such an exciting time of growth for the agency and I'm looking forward to playing a central part in that."
Bridget Moore, Alchemy Media Founder, added: "I'm delighted to welcome El, Georgia and Becca to Alchemy. These are three fantastic hires for the business, providing further strength and depth to our team as well as creating some headroom as we experience increased demand for our skills and services."
Last month, Light and Client Services Director Amy Cresswell were promoted to Managing Partners at the media agency.
