Ogilvy has bolstered its leadership team for Unilever with Nadja Bellan-White and Daniel Fisher as global managing director and global executive creative director respectively.

Meanwhile, data science and martech firm 4C has recruited Karl Knights as VP of revenue, EMEA, where he will spearhead the region’s contribution to $2 billion+ in annualised advertising, spend currently running through the Scope by 4C™ platform.

Elsewhere, Engagio has welcomed Megan Heuer as VP of marketing. In her new role, Heuer will lead Engagio’s marketing team and support the company’s rapid and continued growth.

Bristol-based CRM specialist, Armadillo has welcomed Nick Beevors as their senior strategist. Beevors joins the business with over 15 years' experience across the planning and strategy industry; splitting his expertise between integrated advertising agencies and in-house marketing departments. 


Following the departures of M&C Saatchi’s co-founder Maurice Saatchi and non-executive directors Lorna Tilbian, Michael Dobbs and Michael Peat, the UK ad agency has confirmed further departures. CEO Giles Hedger and chief creative officer Justin Tindall both accepted voluntary redundancy due to the loss of the Natwest ad account, as confirmed by The Drum.
