Global experience marketing agency George P. Johnson (GPJ) has beefed up its European team with two new appointments.
George Bear (pictured) joins the agency, following 10 years’ creative resource experience gained at a multitude of shops across the wider agency spectrum, including FCB Inferno, JWT and WCRS.
Merethe Bergnord-Ashby joins GPJ’s Norwegian team, based in Oslo, and brings 20 years of experience in planning, developing and implementing events at Nordic agencies Gyro and Playroom Event.
Bear and Bergnord-Ashby’s appointments follow the recent hire of industry veteran John Farquhar-Smith, as executive producer of GPJ last month.
Jason Megson, MD for the UK & Nordics at GPJ, said: “I’m delighted to announce these hires across our European team. At this exciting time of growth, Merethe brings a unique wealth of Norwegian expertise to our expanding local client base; whilst George’s solid and diverse background supports our investment in GPJ’s creative capability.”
