Simon Hambley, director of live at Crown, said: "We’re pleased to welcome Jasper on board. His knowledge and expertise will complement a new offering within the pharmaceutical market, especially as our portfolio of clients continues to grow. Strengthening our team with exceptional talent is key to our growth. I’m also delighted that Paul is re-joining us. He has an in-depth knowledge of the sector and a mature approach to winning new clients. It is a competitive environment and we are working hard with lots of new developments on the horizon." He added the agency aims to offer a high quality of client service and class-leading expertise.

"These two roles are part of our aim to remain at the top of the pile in terms of the end result we deliver to our clients."
