LONDON, July 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- King Content has appointed former Director of Strategy and Head of Content Marketing at DirectionGroup as Head of Strategy in its London office. Geraint has previously held several global content roles in the UK market and has a strong background in content marketing and strategy, having worked for ad agencies JWT, Leo Burnett and Grey before running his own B2B agency for 12 years.
Geraint's hire comes at a time when King Content is underlining its strategic approach to content marketing following a string of successful global client wins with Intuit, Universum, LinkedIn and HP.
Geraint Holliman, Head of Strategy, London, said:
"It was really a no-brainer to join one of the content marketing world's leading agencies. Having closely followed King Content's progress over the past couple of years, it was clear this was the right time to bring its uniquely strategic yet practical approach to content marketing to the European market. I'm excited to be joining now when the agency is poised for such extraordinary growth."
Todd Wheatland, Global Head of Strategy at King Content, said:
"Obviously we're very excited to be bringing Geraint on board. He's been an active fixture in the global content marketing space for some years and has a unique blend of commercial and academic passion that makes a great strategist. The UK market has proven extremely receptive to our business, and we have high hopes for what can be achieved through the combination of our global model and strong local strategist team with Geraint at the helm."
Geraint's appointment follows a string of hires for King Content from local and international talent pools. In the past year the company has brought in former Mindshare (UK) Social Lead, Ruth Haffenden, former Weber Shandwick (US) Strategy and Planning Director, Penny Bartholomew, and former Head of Content (Moving Image) for Red Bull UK, Christie Poulos, among others.
King Content continues to rapidly expand across the globe, having recently opened its sixth office in Hong Kong. The new office will act as a catalyst for its Chinese content requirements, as well as service the growing number of local clients in Asia.
