Integrated agency, Jam_ continues its ambitious growth plans with three new additions to its Manchester-based team.
New team members
Marketing and communications expert, Linzi Atkinson, joins the agency as Account Director, bringing a wealth of senior experience in retail to the role. Linzi, who has worked for Golden Square in Warrington and The Rock in Bury, will be responsible for driving the Jam strategy, delivering and managing projects for clients, bringing in new business and managing the growing team.
Sean McMahon joins the team as Digital Manager, reflecting the agency’s continual shift to integrated digital comms. Sean, who has made the move to Manchester after seven years working in Leeds, will be responsible for developing integrated digital marketing strategies across Jam’s broad client base, and leading on social media strategy and implementation.
Prior to joining Jam, Sean worked with a wealth of high profile clients, including the British Library, Viking Direct and Moonpig.
Account Manager Holly Latham has been appointed to supervise and develop strategies for key accounts including Printworks and Mexichem, as well as playing a role in securing new business.
Previous high-profile clients Holly has worked with include Zoflora, Horlicks and the NHS. Holly’s experience also includes working with a range of travel clients including Teletext Holidays, which will help pave the way for Jam’s onboarding of future travel clients.
Jaime Gee, MD and Co-owner of Jam, said, “The trio of high profile appointments reflect Jam’s ambitious expansion and growth plans. Linzi, Sean and Holly all bring incredible amounts of experience and knowledge to the agency, and all three will help to drive Jam forward over the coming years. We are absolutely thrilled to welcome them as Jammers.”
Currently employing 15 staff, Jam has recently taken a second floor in its Northern Quarter office to accommodate its expanding team and growth plans.
The appointments follow a successful 12 months, which saw JAMpr and JAMcreative rebranding to become Jam_ to reflect the agency’s integrated offering.
