The Gate has boosted its team with the appointment of Marina Hidalgo Blanco as its first growth director.

Marina joins from Wunderman Thompson UK where she was creative content director, directly responsible for helping the agency achieve a record number of national and international awards and winning the highest number of Cannes Lions in the history of the agency. 

She also has extensive international experience at high-profile agencies in New York and Buenos Aires as well as London.

In her role at The Gate, Marina will report to CEO Jamie Elliott, and be responsible for raising the agency’s profile as well as creating an agenda for new business and organic growth, working in partnership with the MSQ marketing team.

Marina Hidalgo Blanco said: “It was the incredible work that was being produced and the ambitious uber-talented team that truly drew me to The Gate. It has long been on my radar as an agency I would love to work for - delivering one award-winning campaign after another, they are hard to miss. I am so excited to be joining at such a pivotal point in the agency’s growth and being part of this incredible team as they look set to achieve another record year, I anticipate fantastic things ahead.”
