We are thrilled to announce today a senior hire in our London office, as well as two significant promotions amongst the London team!
Effective May 1st, Holly Hunter has joined Clarity in the role of joint deputy managing director and will sit on the London senior leadership team alongside Catriona Biggart, who has been in position since January this year. This is strategic hire our UK team and is in direct response to the growth the Clarity London office has experienced through 2020 and the start of 2021.
The increasing demand to work with leading technology brands and consult their C suite on their comms challenges as we come out of lockdown and grapple with bigger economic challenges including Brexit, is immense, thus bringing on Holly to bolster the exceptional team in London is crucial as we move into the next phase of our growth.
Holly brings years of both in-house and agency experience to the Clarity team. Most recently, Holly ran PR for Cytora, a Series B insurtech based in London. Prior to this Holly led the Software and Services practice at Hotwire, where she oversaw global PR programmes, led on client strategy and supported agency growth.
From London MD & President, EMEA, Rachel Gilley: “I met Holly a couple of years ago and knew I wanted her on the team then. It’s taken me this long to make it a reality but I’m so excited she’s chosen to come onboard. The London team has made it through the challenges of last year with 28% growth compared to this time last year, the hiring of six new people and the onboarding of some of the most exciting companies in the technology space including Yubo, KIN and Survey Monkey. The addition of Holly to the brilliant team we have in place now, will only allow us to further scale.”
Added Holly:“The opportunity to join such a creative, purpose-driven agency at such a pivotal point in its growth journey is rare – and incredibly exciting. Clarity is an agency I’ve admired for a long time, thanks to its high calibre of clients and the outstanding talent in the company. I couldn’t be happier to be working alongside such impressive people, and with truly inspiring clients driving real change across their industries.”
The recent growth in the London office, has also seen Liam McLaughlin promoted to the role of VP Client Services Europe. Liam has been with Clarity London for almost three years, joining from ThreePipe, seeing the office through the acquisition of Dynamo and pitching and winning clients in the region.
