Following the news that Leeds’ Intermarketing Agency has opened new offices in London, Amsterdam and Sydney, Simon Long is appointed Creative Director for London. This senior appointment highlights the agency’s focus on continuing to develop its creative offering in these markets.

Simon Long, an award-winning Creative Director, strategist and mentor will be heading up the London studio. Over the past 15 years he has led creative, development and design teams working in the digital and traditional arenas, for leading brands including Jack Daniel’s, Chanel, NatWest and Chivas Regal.

Long said: “My focus is to help grow an agency model that instinctively adapts to an ever-changing culture. The moment I met the guys in Leeds, it was clear that Intermarketing Agency was the place to continue that work”

With the office now open on Farringdon Lane, Long added: “The key is to preserve and nurture the culture at Intermarketing Agency. Building an ethos and environment where the best ideas are born and thrive is essential in our aim to establish the agency as a creative force in the London market”.

The agency’s London office opened in September following continued growth and success working with London-based clients including RSA, Bupa Global, NSPCC and Marie Curie Cancer Care. The plan is to service some existing clients from this office, as well as using it as an opportunity to recruit even more talent and clients.

Chris Weston, ex-HeyHuman and Brave, also joins as Creative Director based at the agency’s Leeds HQ, and will be part of the creative management team along with Simon and four others.

Nickii Gray, Managing Director: “There is such a great energy and ambition in the agency, we have had a big year and these senior creative appointments are key to ensuring we can continue to offer our clients the best possible creative product and service as we grow in size and reach. We are thrilled to have Simon on board, he brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience. We are committed to further establishing ourselves in the London market and confident Simon can help us do just that”

These appointments support Intermarketing Agency’s continued growth, and follow several other key appointments in recent months, ensuring that the agency remains agile and focused on providing its clients with the best possible service – something it is renowned for and has a trusted team to support its continued growth.
