The Monkeys has also hired Mat Rawnsley, a communications director at Naked, who joins as a channel planner.

Buresti, who is promoted from strategic planning director, said: “Planning plays a big part in all the stuff we do, and I know kick-arse thinkers like Sophie and Mat will contribute a lot to our work in the future. Their easygoing attitude and passion to produce great ideas make them the perfect fit for our culture.”
