Red C has hired 2 account directors, both of whom started their careers at the Salford Quays agency as work placements.

Surakshitha Bharucha has spent the last 3 years as a freelance across agencies in Manchester and London. This included spells at TBWA\Media Arts Lab, Leo Burnett and MullenLowe Group.

“I am absolutely delighted to be back at Red C. The culture, people and client mix make it a hugely enjoyable place to work and I’m thrilled to be back and I look forward to making a major contribution for years to come,” she said.

Bharucha will be working across clients including N Brown and Royal London.

The other account director is Christopher Morey, who’s been promoted from senior account manager.

“Although I spent a couple of years client side, at Damart, I’ve always felt at home at Red C,” he explained.

“It only feels like yesterday when I first walked through those doors as a student placement for the first time, but in reality it was 10 years ago! It’s true what they say, time does indeed fly when you’re having fun”.

He will be handling Pure Collection, ResponseTap, Dulux Decorator Centre and Fish Insurance.

“Shitha and Chris were both exceptional student placements and we knew they would both grow into exceptional strategic marketeers. We are absolutely delighted to have them at Red C and part of our senior management team,” added managing director Steve White.
