LIFE appoints their own fantastic five

Friday August 29, 2014 at 3:42pm
Ian Humphris, joint managing director at independent integrated agency LIFE, has bolstered the agency’s strategy and account management teams with five new hires. Debbie Preston, formerly part of Fox’s Biscuits, joins LIFE as strategy director. Preston has experience in commercial, planning as well as insight, previously upholding various client and agency roles within Coors Brewers, Halfords, Divine Marketing and M&C Saatchi. Vivian Ayaji and Alex Fenwick also moved to LIFE as account managers. Ajayi has worked with clients including Bentley and Barclays. Fenwick’s responsibilities included the Nike account as former account manager at Green Room Retail. They will respectively be working on Maziuum UK and SCA at LIFE. On the creative side, Chris Quelch joins as artworker and Ginny Mathews as creative. The expansion of the agency’s Birmingham office will facilitate recent business wins such as Maxxium UK and Samsung. Humphris comments: “Our client roster has never looked better. We’ve taken an aggressive approach to new business over the past six months and it’s paid off with the likes of Maxxium UK, SCA and Samsung coming onboard. That means we need a senior pair of strategic eyes and hands to deliver the guidance and shopper and consumer insight our clients need to grow their businesses.” He adds, “We’re also delighted to welcome our new starters across the business. They bring a wide range of experience and we’re particularly thrilled to welcome back some faces we’ve worked with before.”
