Gillian Ward has been promoted to board director people, alongside former C&IT A-Lister Rosa Chapman as board director client service and John Viccars as board director strategy.
Ward who has over 20 years’ experience working in HR, including 13 years spent at Accenture joined RPM at the start of 2016.
Chapman joined the RPM account team in 2007, working across a diverse range of clients and sectors, being promoted to business director in 2015 before joining the board.
Viccars joined RPM in 2012 as a senior strategist and was promoted to head of strategy in 2015 to utilise his broader integrated agency experience and develop RPM’s strategic offering.
Commenting on the appointments, Dom Robertson, managing director, RPM, said: "We have an ambitious and exciting three-year plan, building on our core business offering, as well as expanding into new markets and territories. A key part of fulfilling that ambition is ensuring we have the right board in place.
As an agency, we are evolving the way we work to be more accountable, more agile and more entrepreneurial. It’s fantastic to have Rosa and John join the board, bringing their own areas of expertise with them. As we continue to evolve and invest our core competencies and future-proof our business, we will never lose sight of the fact that we are a people-led business. To that end, we feel it is vital that we have Gillian as a member of the board as well."
