Leeds-based digital creative agency Rascal has announced it has appointed a new Head of Client Services and Head of Design as part of its plans to expand with new hires. 

Craig Timson (pictured, left) joins the agency as Head of Client Services, having previously worked with HOME, OTB and Front. In his new role, he will focus on leading and developing the client services team and work closely with the business growth team to ensure business targets are met.

Joining the agency as its new Head of Design, Simon Newsome (pictured, right) will oversee the creative execution of all campaigns, manage, develop and expand the design team and will oversee all creative output. 

He has held key roles in the industry, previously the former Creative Lead at The Hut Group, and former Senior Designer at CreativeRace.

The appointment of the duo are part of the agency’s plans to “rapidly expand” with new clients and new hires, after it moved offices behind Channel 4’s HQ in Leeds city centre.  

Joe Costandi, Rascal’s owner and Managing Director, said: “It’s an incredibly exciting time at Rascal, with a range of new clients and new senior hires the agency is growing fast.

“Craig and Simon will bring vast experience and talent to the agency, helping to grow the business, developing current clients and bringing new clients onboard.”
