TIPi Group has made three internal promotions, following the group's recent restructure.
Gareth Owen, formerly a managing director at Roast, has been promoted to the newly-created role of group managing director while John Barham will become Roast’s managing director and Jessica Hodgson, its group client services director.
In his new role, Owen will oversee the business' growth and ensure a more efficient partnership between each agency. He will also be taking responsibility for strategic thinking across the group’s business offerings. Hodgson will support Owen by aligning client objectives with the group’s business strategies. Whereas Barham will be refocusing Roast's core performance model.
The restructure comes after TIPi Group’s series of new business wins from the past six months, one of which is Freesat which the agency will be handling media planning and buying for across TV and digital alongside its partners Electric Glue.
TIPi Group is currently entering its fourth year and now houses four specialised agencies including website design and development agency, Kitty, traditional digital performance agency, Roast, light-touch digital performance agency The Market and voice specialist agency Rabbit & Pork.
"The ambition of TIPi Group has always been to build something unique - to have multiple agencies, each with different specialisms – a network of independent thinkers operating with one shared ethos and way of thinking, with independence at its core - offering an alternative to larger networks. At the heart of the group is the idea that passion beats scale," said Bishop.
"Each of the three individuals taking on new positions bring a combination of experience and passion that will drive the strategic development of TIPi Group moving forward," he continued.
TIPi Group have also just moved into a new office on Berners Street, as they had outgrown their previous Holborn home.
