Brandon expands team with two new appointments

Last month, Brandon appointed two new starters to support its growing client roster.

Beth Johnson joins as Account Manager to further build strong client relationships and support the client service team. Beth returns to the North West from London-based BrandMe where she led projects for Birdseye, Lucozade and Ribena. On joining Brandon, Beth says;

“I’d kept a keen eye on Brandon for a while, as it’s very rare for a medium-sized brand agency outside of London to have such a strong calibre of consumer goods clients. And all the creative work I saw from the outside shone through. Now I’ve got the pleasure of working alongside the great team behind it all, and as the business looks to expand further in 2021 and beyond, it’s a very exciting time to be on board!”

Tessa Hill joins as Brand Strategist following positions at Propaganda and Robot Food;

“Coming in as a brand strategist, it’s great to be with an agency that is keen to promote and develop people, and with a clear role for strategy at the heart of the business. It’s an exciting time to join to help some of the UK’s biggest household names win their fight for relevance.”

Most recently those wins have included supporting Napolina to become the UK’s fastest growing food brand of 2019 and Horlicks to increase sales by 3.6% through repositioning the brand from functional to emotional escapism.

Managing Partner, Richard Taylor, says:

“2020 was the strangest year of my life and we bore witness to many businesses struggling to win their fight to survive. We’re extremely fortunate to work in the consumer goods space, working with clients we love and picking up a series of new clients in the second half of 2020. This has allowed us the opportunity to bring both Beth and Tessa into the Brandon family and they’ve have hit the ground at speed – despite the challenge of not having met most of the team face-to-face due to the pandemic lockdown. It’s going to be exciting to see them and the business grow in the year ahead.”
