Digital Marketing agency Steak Media has appointed two senior adland figures – Robert Campbell and Matt Clark as non executive board directors.

Since his departure from United, Robert has been working on independent projects which include Virgin Unite, the re-launch of Hammer Horror, the launch of The Elders and writing a screenplay. He is also a trustee for Peace One Day, the charity whose goal is to create a global day of peace on 21st September.

Matt joined Mother in 1999 as Finance Director and Partner. Since joining, he has played an instrumental part in building the foundations for the company to pursue its ambitions and expand its ambitions. Its consistent new-business performance had lead to an enviable international client list that includes: Coca-Cola, Diageo, Unilever, Orange, Boots and Yell.

Steak Media’s current board members include chairman Seb Bishop, who is President of paid-search network Miva and Chrysi Philalithes, vice president of global marketing and communications at Miva.

Seb Bishop, Chairman of Steak Media commented: “We are delighted to welcome Robert Campbell and Matt Clark to our board. Robert has worked at many of the best agencies in London including WCRS and AMV DDO as well as founding the Banks Partnership and Rainey Kelly Campbell Rolfe. He is respected figure in the advertising world and his invaluable experience will help us create award-winning campaigns and improve digital integration with above the line media. Matt will bring valuable operational expertise and wide ranging international business development from the advertising industry. His experiences of successfully diversifying Mother are perfect for Steak’s ambitious growth strategies.”

Oliver Bishop, CEO of Steak Media commented:” Robert and Matt have over 40 year’s experience of working in advertising between them, they bring a wealth of industry experience and we look forward to their contribution to our board. I believe they will integrate well into what is already an exceptionally strong management team. We’ve had an eventful six months, our latest new business wins include John Lewis and British Gas and we have just completed our first round of funding. Exciting times are ahead for Steak Media.”

Robert Campbell commented: “Since I left the good old fashioned above the line business I’ve discovered some amazing things. Steak media are one of the most exciting of my discoveries. They genuinely turn the art of persuasion into a science. If I were a client, this is where I’d be spending my money!”

Matt Clark commented: “I am looking forward to being involved in the next phase of Steak’s growth. Their expansion has been phenomenal over the last 2 years and they are clearly already market leaders in a fast growing sector”.
