Mediaworks has named Leigh Gammons as its new Chief Customer Officer.
Gammons joins from WPP, where he was CEO of Wunderman Thompson Technology, a £40m specialist digital division, where he led a team of 600 staff across 7 global offices.
“For Mediaworks to have doubled in size over the last two years is incredibly impressive, so it’s an exciting time to be joining the team,” he said.
“They’ve been on my radar for some time. Their unique approach to data driven experiences blew me away the first time our paths crossed, so I was delighted when Brett [Jacobson] asked me to join the board here. The commitment to developing proprietary IP sets them apart when delivering exceptional customer insights and commercially-driven results for clients.
“It’s very clear to me that we’re going to continue to have a huge influence on the digital marketing industry in the UK, Ireland and beyond, so I’m really excited for our future together.”
Over recent years, the Newcastle-based agency has expanded its presence, with offices in Leeds, Edinburgh, Manchester, London and Dublin.
“Leigh is exactly the calibre of person we’re attracting to Mediaworks. His experience of growing a digital business to a £40m operation across multiple, international sites will be of huge value as we chart our own growth journey. He has a deep understanding of the digital industry and how that’s applied with the very best global brands,” added CEO and founder of Mediaworks, Brett Jacobson.
“Leigh brings an exciting, new dynamic to the senior team here. He’ll be a critical part of the team’s focus on making us the biggest and best UK headquartered digital agency.”
