Cardiff-based communications agency, Station Rd, has marked its next phase of growth with a new senior appointment.
The integrated communications agency has appointed, Mike Palmer, as head of creative to lead on brand strategy, creative and campaign activation across the business as well as overseeing its growing creative team.
Palmer brings with him over ten years’ experience working with a range of national and international brands including Mr Tom, NHS Wales, GoCompare and Sport Wales. His appointment comes at a crucial period of growth for the agency, as it announces a turnover increase of 88% between 2017/2018 and has recently been appointed to the Gov.uk supplier roster for the next 12 months.
Mike Palmer said: “I’ve worked with Station Rd. for a number of years and when the opportunity was presented to join as head of creative I couldn’t refuse. They work with some great brands, building strong long-term relationships, which demonstrates how much clients value what they do. They operate with honesty and integrity and these are values that very much align with my ethos.
“I’m looking forward to being part of how Station Rd. evolves as an agency and working with some interesting brands and businesses.”
Speaking of the appointment, Lyanna Tsakiris director of Station Rd, said: “Mike’s experience and creative skill set fit extremely well with our current team and client portfolio. We’ve developed a strong working relationship with him over the years and it was the natural choice to get him on board to head up our creative team. Our clients benefit from channel-neutral communications strategies that deliver commercial results, and having a strong creative lead to help plan and bring campaigns to life is key.
“Mike’s appointment is a significant milestone and investment for the business and we are looking forward to what’s next.”
Launched in 2014 by accomplished marketing professionals, Jason Stallard and Lyanna Tsakiris, the full service marketing agency has gone from strength to strength since its origins, delivering strategic campaigns regionally and nationally with their approach being to ‘make it matter’.
