Sagittarius prides itself on the diverse talents of its team and Ian brings yet more flavour to the table - deep client-side experience at every level matched with big brand knowledge make him an ideal fit for our leadership team.”

Ian MacArthur added: "I'm excited to join Sagittarius at a time when their vision and ambition matches my appetite for doing brilliant work. My passion is modern marketing and brand transformation, the core of which is digital. I've been lucky enough to work with amazing people for over 25 years and the team at Sagittarius fit that ideal perfectly.”
