UM Manchester has hired Leigh Yoxall, a broadcast account director for Rocket, as its new head of broadcast.
Yoxall will join the media agency later this year, taking over from Richard Johnston who joined Carat Manchester in June. He will be tasked with leading the Aldi broadcast media account, as well as other TV based clients.
Sharon Palmer, head of media for UM Manchester, said that Yoxall would bring “top flight experience from both an agency and client perspective and I know he will make a major impact on the future shape and direction of our offering.”
Prior to joining Rocket, Yoxall has also held roles within The Allmond Partnership, Starcom Mediavest and MEC.
