Strata Creative Communications has made four new appointments across the agency.

Mike Parrott joins the senior leadership team in the newly created role of head of incentives and client service director, based in Soho, London. He previously held senior roles at Grass Roots, Maritz and AYMTM. Parrott will report to Simon Hambley, chief executive officer of Strata.

Ecem Pasa joins the creative department in the role of junior designer, also based in London.

Alan Guntripp assumes the role of warehouse manager and Martin Yexley takes on the position of event operator, both based out of the Brackley office, in Northamptonshire.

The new appointments come off the back of a strong start to 2019, which has seen the agency produce conferences, roadshows and incentive programmes for long-term clients including Vauxhall and Citroën, Royal London and Sony.

Simon Hambley, said:"The first six months of operation for the newly formed Strata has been strong with high-profile events and programmes for existing clients, along with a number of significant new client wins.

"The new appointments across our two locations reflect the depth and breadth of our value proposition from strategy and creative through to production and operations, and from consumer programmes to B2B."

Mike Parrott added: "I’ve worked with a number of agencies and brands over my 25-year career, and there’s an opportunity to make a real difference here using my cross-industry experience of automotive and consumer electronics, in particular."
