Social studio Jack Nimble has appointed James McInnes in the newly created role of Head of Social.

With an eclectic mix of international experience across the entertainment industry, agencies and start-ups, McInnes’ true understanding of what works across social will see him take the lead in delivering the social strategy and vision for Jack Nimble’s clients.

His entrepreneurial spirit, experience in driving culture, and passion for social-first content is exactly what we’re looking for as we strive to continue delivering the very best social content for brands.

“Angus (Jack Nimble Co-Founder) and I had the pleasure of working alongside James in the past – his understanding of what actually works on social and his compassionate approach to working with others make him the perfect fit for the culture we’re building.”

McInnes added: “It’s no secret Jack Nimble is making a huge impact on the industry. Their unique blend of social-first creative with full in-house production capabilities makes them unlike any other agency, and an attractive choice for many brands.

“I couldn’t be more excited to join the team, and I can’t wait to keep building on Jack Nimble’s refreshing approach to social across current and future clients.“
