Rok Creative appoints new lead developer and business development manager

Rok Creative, an integrated creative agency based in the Midlands, has expanded its team with James Wallsgrove joining as lead digital developer and Mark Woolaston as business development manager.

Wallsgrove, who joins from Creative Bridge, said: “Digital moves so fast, so you really have to keep an eye on changes to algorithms, code updates, new technologies and how consumers interact with brands online. Rok understands how vital this is to an ever-changing marketing landscape, so the decision to join the agency was a no-brainer.”

With more than 10 years’ experience in the Midlands advertising agency arena, Woolaston will be responsible for engaging new clients and marketing the agency. He’ll represent the first point of contact for the majority of new business that comes in.

Speaking of the new appointments CEO Peter Leopold said: “This represents a major coup for Rok Creative, both on the technical and business side of the agency. We’re going into the second half of the year with an even more robust offering for clients and oodles of enthusiasm for what’s ahead. These really are exciting times for Rok!”

Rok Creative's clients include MG Motors, Great Wall Motors and TomTom.
