Chester digital agency Reckless has appointed Steven Swann as its new Creative Director.

Swann was most recently Creative Director at Mando, where he worked for three years, and has also held roles at Amaze and McCann. Clients he has worked for include Disney, Toyota, Aldi, Unilever and Diesel.

“Reckless is a company I have been paying attention to for quite a few years now,” Swann said. “I’ve known Callum and some of the team for a while and it’s great to be joining them when the agency is expanding as it is. 

“It’s a crucial time for Reckless and I’m excited to have the opportunity to push creativity across all departments and show what we are capable of with the great team that is already established.”

MD and founder Callum Reckless added: “We have an extremely exciting journey ahead of us and the appointment of Steve marks a key milestone in the development of the team and wider business. 

“I’m really excited to have Steve on board to see him nurture the creative team and enhance our creative output. His experience is of great value to us and I look forward to him challenging us and driving us forward throughout 2018 and beyond.

“We welcomed a lot of strong recruits in 2017 and the appointment of Steve continues this trend. He is the first of many important recruits we have lined up for 2018 who will help us shape this pivotal year ahead.”

Reckless picked up key accounts with Sodexo, Willerby Holiday Homes, Horizon Global and The Original Tour last year and is looking to expand its service-offering across Europe in 2018. 

The agency is expected to announce the opening of an Amsterdam office later this year to support their multilingual digital marketing services.
