Independent integrated marketing agency BD Network has announced three senior hires within its experiential and events team, following a number of high profile business wins earlier this year. Jennifer Draper, Business Director (pictured), joins from Ketchum to lead the experiential team. Draper ran Ketchum’s events arm as Practice Group Director working on a number of high profile clients. Stephen Crook, Production Director, and Victoria Roberts, Senior Account Director, Experiential, both join from marketing agency, The Bank. The appointments follow the competitive pitches by AB Inbev brand Corona and Cadbury’s at the start of the year. BD was confirmed as lead activation agency for Corona, activating the brand’s global creative platform of SunSet Sessions, bringing them to life via a number of events during the summer. BD also recently launched the Cadbury’s Fly Air campaign, offering consumers the opportunity to win a private jet to a number of glamorous destinations. Sam Smith, Managing Director, BD Network, says: “The start of 2015 was a period of unprecedented growth for BD Network following the competitive new business pitches of AB Inbev and Cadbury’s. With such growth comes great opportunity, which has allowed us to expand our experiential and events offering. We are particularly proud of the new business wins and the new projects and opportunities this brings with it.” Established in 1990, BD Network is now the UK’s largest independent creative agency. Clients include: Arla Foods, Virgin Media, Capri-Sun, EJ Gallo, Whyte & Mackay, Peugeot, Coca-Cola, Swarovski, Nintendo, Nestea, AB-InBev, Vue, Cadbury, British Sugar and Unilever.
