Performance content agency Zazzle Media has named Richard Marriott as its new Head of Agency.

Marriott, who has been with Zazzle since 2014 and latterly as Strategy Director, will be responsible for the strategic direction and day-to-day operational activity of Zazzle alongside the executive team at Leeds-based parent company Stickyeyes, part of the IPG Mediabrands network.

The 40-strong team at Zazzle Media, which was established in 2009, includes journalists, PR and SEO specialists and a web design and build team that works with clients including AO.com, Betway and Compare the Market from its London and Peterborough offices.

Phil Kissane, Group Managing Director at Stickyeyes Group, said: "It's fantastic to be able to recognise Richard's contribution to Zazzle's success as we enter the next stage of growth. He knows the Zazzle team, their strengths and value to their clients inside out and is highly regarded by everyone he works with."

Marriott (pictured) added: "I couldn't have imagined I'd be managing a mass work from home migration and the subsequent impacts of COVID in my first few months in post but I'm immensely proud of the way the team has handled this latest challenge and excited to be leading Zazzle into the next stage of our development.

"Our core focus will continue to be our people and client performance, while ensuring closer integration with our brilliant colleagues in Leeds and London."
