Today marks a significant day in the Fold7 journey as we announce the appointment of James Joice from Leo Burnett, taking on the role of Managing Partner.
James is Client Service Director at Leo Burnett where he has spent the past three years leading the flagship McDonald’s account. He started his career at M&C Saatchi working his way up to Group Account Director, climbing to the rank of Group Account Director before joining design firm JKR as Business Development Director. He begins his duties at Fold7 in April and will report to our CEO Marc Nohr. “James is highly respected by client, colleagues and industry contacts for his acumen and people skills. And he brings big brand experience to us at a time where more of our clients are operating internationally and needing us to manage complex challenges with agility,” explains Marc. “Nimble, open and truly ideas-driven, I believe Fold7 represents the future of how to make great, effective work,” adds James.
Recognised as a champion of creative ideas, a great team leader and a thoroughly nice guy, we’re excited to have James spearhead our client service and new business departments. He is the final addition to our new senior line-up following the hires last year of ECD Simon Learman, Strategy Partner Yelena Gaufman, Content Partner Christine Beardsell and Production Partner Lise McQuillin.
