Emily Goddard joins the team as an associate director and project lead. Goddard’s role will focus specifically on digital marketing, brand strategy and the creative activation of insight. With sector expertise that spans social and political communications, as well as media, technology, entertainment and sport.
Corcoran said: “The agency’s commitment to the people that work here has been clear from day one, promoting a supportive and really positive work environment for everyone. Manchester is a new city to me, but there’s lots happening here for the industry and I’m looking forward to taking on the challenge.”
Quentin Ashby, CEO of Join the Dots, said: “It’s a pleasure to welcome both Rory and Emily to the team and stands as a testament to the quality of the business and its output that we are attracting such a high calibre of talent to the north of England, with the wealth of industry expertise that both Emily and Rory possess. I am in no doubt they will be invaluable additions to their respective teams and to the business.”
