DRPG appoints global development director

New appointment brings extensive international experience, having previously worked for the BBC and CNBC.

Worcester-based communications agency DRPG has appointed Dagmar Mackett as its global development director. 

Having joined DRPG in 2009 as a board director, Mackett previously headed up the company’s film and video department, building an award-winning film and animation team.

With new offices in Germany, Ireland and the US, Mackett's new role will address clients’ requirements for more internationally focused communications.

DRPG’s CEO, Dale Parmenter added: "As a global company, it is important for us to be constantly breaking down international communications barriers and building relationships across the world.

"Dagmar’s unique, diverse skillset, her past global experience and her deep understanding of the industry is the perfect recipe to help us develop our global citizenship skills and reach new audiences in an effective, targeted way."

Dagmar's extensive international experience springs from having studied journalism and languages. She started her career in Sweden as a producer and presenter for national broadcaster SVT, and also worked in London as a producer for the BBC and CNBC.

Moving into corporate production, Mackett managed accounts such as the European Space Agency, Daimler Benz and Nokia.

On her new role, Dagmar said: "I’m incredibly excited to be at the helm of this new chapter of DRPG’s soon to be 40-year history and use my longstanding international expertise and my language capabilities to open up new opportunities in other parts of the world."
