180 Kingsday has appointed Philip Jackson as strategy director. Philip, who will be working with executive strategy director, Tiina Salzberg, on the agency’s evolving strategic division, brings with him nearly two decades of international experience.
Formally a global marketing lead on L’OR, one of Jacob Douwe Egberts’ leading global brands, Philip also worked in global brand strategy for Mondelēz International, where he oversaw multiple global, regional and local brands. Prior to this, Philip spent the first fifteen years of his career working for several prolific agencies including McCann Erikson and Saatchi & Saatchi. There he developed and contributed to strategic marketing campaigns for clients including Nike, Ford, T-Mobile, Microsoft and MasterCard.
Commenting on Jackson’s appointment, Tiina Salzberg, executive strategy director said: “It’s not only Philip’s wealth of experience that makes him such a vital addition to the team but his empathy, energy and ambition. Every strategic perspective Phil provides is rooted in humanity; every insight is informed and considered, delivering the most robust strategic direction for the brands we work with.”
Jackson is one of a number of senior hires made by 180 Kingsday in recent months, reflecting a period of organic growth for the award-winning agency. Anne Fleming, previously senior creative in Adidas’ brand comms team, will bring her extensive experience to clients such as Unilever and Qatar Airways. She will be joined by junior creatives Nick van Wagenberg and Nevil van Outheusden, who won the new talent award at the Dutch creativity awards earlier this year.
The account management team have also seen new hires, most notably, the former group account director at Wieden+Kennedy, Eva Rausch, who arrives as business director to lead several large global clients including Qatar Airways. This quarter has also seen the return of Corey Ingrasin, a 180 alumni who will be reprising his role as studio manager.
Commenting on the new hires, CEO, Sander Volten said: “We’re heading into the final quarter of 2019 on the back of a period of organic growth. This is reflected by the raft of news hires who bring with them unique and diverse perspectives and a burning desire to make some healthy trouble. We're delighted to attract this group of talented, ambitious troublemakers to our international team.”view more - Hires, Wins & Business180 Amsterdam, Tue, 01 Oct 2019 09:48:45 GMT
