Gloria Jean’s Coffees’ former global head of marketing Paul Mendham has taken on a role at Christian charity Wesley Mission.
Mendham, who had stints at Saatchi & Saatchi and AdPartners before joining Gloria Jean’s in 2010, left the coffee chain following the closure of its inhouse marketing department Immersed Marketing last month.
Mendham joins as corporate marketing manager at the charity, whose mission is “Honouring God, serving people, building hope.”
Wesley Mission offers services for the homeless, disabled and youth, as well as counselling, employment and training.
Gloria Jean’s folded its marketing department after the arrival of new group MD Mark Bilton. He led a company review meant that Gloria Jean’s was more open to work with ad agencies.
