Philip Hunt, former CEO of digital agency Wheel, has taken on the role of non executive director for Edinburgh agency Line.
The serial entrepreneur sold Wheel in 2005 to Lbi and has sat on the board of a number of companies in the digital sector since including Preloaded, Foviance, Skyron, and specialist marketing services provider R.O.EYE.
Ross Laurie, managing director of Line, commented; "This is an exciting point in the company's history. After a successful start to 2010 that has seen our turnover and head count increase rapidly we have ambitious plans for Line's expansion over the next couple of years and had set out to look for someone with the right blend of expertise and experience to strengthen our executive team.”
He continued; "Phil fitted the bill perfectly. Not only does he have hard won experience driving companies through organisational change but he also demonstrates a clarity of vision that's hard to find in the digital media business. I look forward to his contribution to the company's continued development."
Hunt added: "I'm delighted to be joining the board of Line, a company I've been familiar with for several years now. It's a dynamic business with an exciting future, and I'm extremely enthusiastic about taking a role in the firm's continued rapid development."
