London-based international agencies HeyHuman and Brave have jointly appointed Helen Wesinger, former marketing partner at Mary Portas, to serve as their new chief marketing officer.
The role will see Weisinger report directly to group CEO Simon Marshall with responsibilities revolving around new business development and marketing strategy.
Creative agency HeyHuman specialise in fostering people-centric brands, working with big name firms such as Unilever, Sony Mobile, Mars and Morrisons. Their colleagues at Brave meanwhile focus on global brands such as John Frieda, Tate & Lyle and Motors.co.uk.
Marshall said: “We have spent the last 18 months making substantial investments in new leadership and in our innovation, strategy, and creative talent. In Helen we have found someone with the energy, experience and leadership skills to represent the agency at the very highest levels in the industry.”
Weisinger added: “The agencies have a brilliant blend of great work and truly amazing people. They are a bit of a shy bunch, but I want to help shout about them from the rooftops."
