Tangible has promoted its chief operating officer Karen Trickett to CEO, managing its three offices across London, Edinburgh and Cheltenham.

Trickett, who has recently overseen a restructure to bring the three offices in line together, has also hired Paul Becque from Elvis as chief strategy officer, Jimmy Thompson from Havas as creative director Cheltenham and Claire Frankling from MBA as client partner.

Trickett takes over as CEO of the group from John Rowley, now CEO of Cello Consumer, the consumer division of Tangible's parent company, Cello.

Rowley said of Trickett’s promotion: “She has been instrumental in the massive progress that Tangible has made in the last two years, bringing in a squad of new people and has led a number of pitches and major clients, moving Tangible to a widening portfolio of major corporates and consumer brands.”

Trickett added: “I am very excited to take up the role as Tangible CEO, having secured the consolidation of our three Tangible offices. We are now at a stage of solid growth, in a great position to pursue our focus on delivering Return on Individuality across a multitude of channels and integrated creative communications for our existing and new clients. I am looking forward to further develop Tangible in its growth.”

In recent months, Tangible has won new contracts with Quality Solicitors, Russell, Family Investments and CBRE, while also continuing to work alongside Lloyds Banking Group, Royal Mail and the Scottish Government.
