deliver even more personalised, agile and innovative marketing solutions for our clients, Steven will play a vital role in developing a more cohesive and proactive partnership between Isobar UK and our recently acquired ecommerce experts eCommera.

The appointment of Steven enables Isobar to be best-in-class in the brand commerce era. He brings significant international experience with him from one of our most successful agencies, Isobar US. Nick’s promotion to EMEA Chief Creative Officer means that their joint experience will form a powerful offering for our clients. We thank Jon Boardman and wish him the very best in the future.
