Rob Weatherhead, the former operations director at Amplifi, has been appointed as Head of Agency at Fast Web Media.

Fast Web Media specialises in designing and delivering bespoke digital marketing strategies and has worked with clients including the BBC, Premier League, Gfinity Esports, Molson Coors Brewing Company and PZ Cussons.

Weatherhead has previously held senior positions at MediaCom, Dentsu Aegis, Tecmark and Latitude. Last year he set up his own consultancy, called Agent Wolf.

Weatherhead will now be responsible for driving Fast Web Media’s growth over the coming years and will report into Glyn Shadwell, who was made Chief Operating Officer of parent company Mporium Group earlier this year.

"Fast Web Media is an agency that has a long history in Manchester. When I heard the ambitions for the agency and met the team, the opportunity to be involved in its future was one which I couldn't pass up,” Weatherhead said.

Shadwell added: “I am delighted to have Rob on board. The appointment will be crucial to Fast Web Media ramping up their offering within Manchester and across the UK.

“Rob brings with him a wealth of experience across the digital landscape and has an unswerving focus on clients and best practice which is essential for Fast Web’s next phase of growth.”

After six years at MediaCityUK, the agency recently moved into Manchester city centre at the Waterhouse building on Spring Gardens.
