Cam Blackley, Chief Creative Officer says of the appointment: “I like the idea of ‘growing your own’ that’s why this promotion is a special one. Chris brings an incredible level of craft and thoughtfulness to his work; in a tough year he’s stood up and proven he can lead people while juggling client relationships on various pieces of business.”

Needless to say, I’m having fun. It’s exciting to step into this role surrounded by such a talented team and to be partnering with smart and ambitious clients,” says Chris Cheeseman
