Jen joins the agency as Head of Partnerships, with her role focused on growing the business’ existing relationships, and forging and identifying new opportunities for both Agent and its clients.
The appointment follows Agent’s recent rebrand, which saw the agency committing to its mission of ‘making good work’, pledging to continue to work with businesses who share its ambition to make a positive difference to people, place and the planet.
The agency – which launched in 2006 and has studios in Liverpool and Manchester – delivers a full service offering for brands such as CGI, National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), Yodel, RHA, and Assura.
Jen brings with her more than a decade of experience in marketing and business development, having worked for major industry names in both London and Manchester, including agencies such as Edelman, MediaCom and Creative Content Works.
On her appointment, Jen said:
“It’s fantastic to be joining such a talented team at a really exciting point in the business’ journey. Agent is incredibly people focused and really practices what it preaches when it comes to equality, diversity and inclusion, which is really important to me.
“I’m looking forward to being part of Agent’s growth and success across the North West, and to help the team continue to do brilliant work.”
Paul Corcoran, CEO, added:
“We’ve hit a number of significant milestones over the past 12 months as an agency, and with this year marking our 16th birthday, we’ve got a huge amount in the pipeline.
“To make sure we can continue to grow in the way we have been, we need to have the right people on board. Jen brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience that will be incredibly beneficial both for us and for our clients, so now is the perfect time for her to join our team.”
