London (PRWEB UK) 7 March 2012
Jessica has worked at Seven for two years and steps up from Client Director. As well as taking up a seat on the Group Board she will be taking over the day-to-day responsibility for all of Seven’s client business, building client satisfaction and the continued growth of Seven’s multi-platform offering.
Seven CEO Sean King said: “There has never been a more exciting time for Seven as brands increasingly recognise the power and value of content to deliver to the bottom line, so the timing to promote Jessica to MD is perfect. Her extensive experience in newsstand publishing and working with major blue chip clients mean she has exactly the right skills to drive Seven’s client business forward. It also allows me to focus on developing new opportunities for the business as we continue to grow in the UK and internationally.”
Jessica said: “I'm very excited to be taking up this new role, as we have ambitious plans this year to further develop the power and value of our clients' owned and earned media. Seven is a fantastic agency; I'm delighted to be working with such a talented group of colleagues and clients.”
Before joining Seven in 2010 Jessica worked for Redwood and before that spent three years at Haymarket as publisher of women’s glossy Eve, having spent the previous 13 years at the BBC.
Seven recently announced several new appointments, including Will Watt as Business Development Director, Emma Martin as Group Account Director, Dave Buck as Financial Controller and former Brand Republic Group Publishing Director Rachael Stilwell to head up its rapidly expanding B2B division.
Stilwell is responsible for growing Seven’s existing B2B portfolio and spearheading the company’s ambitious UK and international growth strategy.
The agency has scooped three prestigious awards at the latest APA Awards. They were for Best Consumer Retail Magazine for Sainsbury’s Magazine, Best Integrated Solution for Sainsbury’s Little Ones for the second year running and Best Consumer Publication (non-retail) for Barometer (Savills) by Blue Door Media, a subsidiary of Seven. Seven was also highly commended with three digital projects. The awards were for its PROJECT magazine iPad app, Sainsbury’s Little Ones and the Guardian/Christian Aid Poverty Over campaign.
