Paul Holman has been promoted to the role of managing partner at Rapp Media as the agency looks to strengthen its senior media team.
The appointment comes after Holman’s promotion to the Rapp UK executive board last year and sees him charged with leading growth across all Rapp Media’s clients, helping them to address business challenges with data-led media strategies.
In addition, Suzanne Vestey has joined the agency as business director to lead a number of key clients and drive integration across the UK business. She joins from ZenithOptimedia where she held the role of client planning director and prior to that was a planning manager for OMD.
Both appointments follow the arrival of Razorfish senior SEO strategist Jonathan Fink as head of SEO, responsible for driving SEO activity across all clients UK and globally and delivering SEO strategies across Rapp UK’s broader client portfolio. He will report to Rapp head of digital, Sharon Braude.
Ian Maynard, managing director of Rapp Media, commented: “Paul’s promotion to managing partner recognises his leadership in the growth of some of our major clients in media and across the wider UK business. His vision for driving further collaboration with our creative and data agencies is delivering against the client need to work with a partner that has all three disciplines aligned.
“I am also delighted to welcome Suzanne and Jonathan to our agency. They both have great experience in areas that are crucial as we build strategies that reflect the changing relationship between brands and consumers.”
Holman re-joined Rapp in 2009 as a business director, having previously worked as head of media at Everest Poker and Mediacom after an earlier stint as a senior planner at Rapp.
