He has worked with major global brands, including Heineken, Four Seasons, EE and Nissan, and won numerous awards for brands such as Lexus, Royal Mail and BBC TV Licensing.
“Jason has a deep understanding of effective and innovative B2B marketing and has won many awards in this area. He will play a key role in evolving our creativity, and working with our new chief strategy officer, Simon Calvert to grow our full-service B2B capabilities blending creativity with data and tech. Having worked with him before, I am delighted that he is joining us,” said Emma Rush, president, Gyro UK.
Fletcher added: “I am thrilled to be to taking the creative helm at Gyro UK. It has never been more important to develop innovative, effective B2B campaigns with clients. With data, strategy, creative, tech and media all together, Gyro UK is perfectly placed to do this at the pace the current landscape requires.
“I’m really looking forward to working with the whole team and augmenting the existing talent and culture. The opportunity to reunite with Emma and to work alongside Simon Calvert makes this a really exciting opportunity.”
