You and Mr Jones has appointed Paddy Power's director of marketing innovation, Sarah Davies, to help lead its brandtech outfit Blood.

Davies joins as an associate partner alongside founding partners and former R/GA senior executives George Prest and Drew Burdon.

She will serve as the business lead for Blood’s portfolio of clients, which include Samsung North America, Unilever, Zappar and Elephant Crisis Fund.

Davies will also become an associate partner in Blood’s parent company, You & Mr Jones, which was set up in June last year by former Havas global chief executive David Jones.

Having left her role as director of marketing innovation at Paddy Power earlier this year Davies will take up her new role immediately at the agency's London office.

Davies brings with her more than 15 years of experience having worked with brands including Stella Artois, Red Bull, the BBC and Adidas.
