He will lead major pitch opportunities and direct transition across the agency roster.

Meanwhile, Jessica Howard has joined TVC as a senior account manager, after returning to London following a three-year stint in Melbourne working for PR and content marketing agency Keep Left. While at Keep Left she worked on FMCG and lifestyle brands including Bakers Delight, Fiji Water and Anchor.
