Hayley Lawrence has been appointed to the role of managing director of agency Brand & Deliver. She moves up from the position of director of events.
Founder Ben Gallop retains the position of CEO, but will hand over responsibility for the day to day running of the Shoreditch-based agency to Lawrence, while concentrating on the strategic side of the business himself.
Lawrence joined Brand & Deliver in 2010 as an account director, before being promoted to director of events and joining the Board in 2015.
The agency reports a 65% increase in turnover over the last 12 months and securing contracts with high value clients such as LG and Three.
“From my early days as a freelance production manager when B&D were my client, to an incredible seven years working my way through the ranks, B&D has been in my blood for a long time now,” says Lawrence. “I love the agency, from the creativity of its staff to its inspirational leadership and I’m honoured to be working alongside Ben to steer us through this next phase of growth.”
Gallop adds: “Hayley is one in a million. I can’t put a figure on the value she has brought to the agency through her incredible work ethic, her creative spark and her straight-talking approach. I know she will do a fantastic job running Brand & Deliver, allowing me to focus on the strategic direction of the agency alongside other projects.”
