Decision Makers Round Up, featuring Marsh & Parsons, Tagetik, Lost My Name and Evergreen UK
Below is a compilation of Decision Makers on the Move from the past week. The recap can also be accessed under “Decision Makers”
Decision Maker: Temporarily (for at least 3-6 months), the marketing department is under the leadership of i2 Office marketing director Marcus Flacks, who's been on maternity cover since August. This follows former 17-year CEO Peter Rollings stepping down to more of a "brand ambassador" role and David Brown filling in. Agencies could have a few new ways in.
Decision Maker: Hired customer-centric financial marketer Dave McGovern as head of marketing to lead the marketing, sales, PR and client development teams. This follows the appointment of Mitesh Sheth as CEO in April and a series of investments in its marketing.
Decision Maker: Under Tagetik's first CMO Dave Kasabian, hired in December 2014, Kevin Moore joins as sales and marketing director in the UK after leading the sales team at Verint for the last nearly six years.
Last month, Nick Nesbitt was promoted to MD of the UK and Ireland.
Decision Makers: Appointed Anne Thouas to head awareness marketing efforts, encompassing above-the-line and paid social channels in the US and UK. She'll spearhead a customer acquisition and marketing campaign strategy over the next few months, so agencies would do well to be in touch if not already.
Her promotion comes 10 months after Shira Feuer joined as VP of marketing, tasked with heading global paid, owned and earned media marketing. The company also hired Director of Performance Marketing Jorrit Bouma and Senior Online Marketing Manager, Growth Christian van Oostrum in the last few months. Agencies would do well to be speedy in their approach.
Decision Maker: Hired Alex Hammond as head of marketing for the mortgages division after bolstering the marketing team last year.
Decision Maker: Promoted Mark Staniforth from UK retail sales controller to UK sales and marketing director. Following 2015 acquisitions, 10-year veteran incumbent Paul Hunter was instated as managing director for Urban Fresh Foods and leadership changes rippled down.
