Claire was previously at Etihad Airways in Abu Dhabi and has also held marketing and product management roles at Johnson and Johnson and L’Oréal. Mark joins from Epiphany Search.
Commenting on the appointments, Glen Conybeare, Stickyeyes Managing Director said:
“Clients tell us that they really value the input our Solutions team have, not just at the beginning of our relationship with them but also the critical analysis they can bring at any stage of their campaigns. The team have an important role to play. They’re not afraid to ask the tough questions, both of our clients and our teams, to make sure that we are delivering on our promise of world-class performance marketing.
Recruiting Claire and Mark to the agency is quite a coup. Not only do they bring fantastic brand and agency-side experience they are also helping us bolster two key strategic areas for the business, Mark’s multi-channel experience is exemplary, and Claire’s understanding of global content strategy is already paying dividends for our global client base”.
On joining Stickyeyes, Claire said: “I was an in-house digital content lead when I listened to a ground-breaking presentation from the Stickyeyes team. Having worked with many agencies throughout my career, I was impressed by the calibre of data-driven and creative thought leadership that informs their approach to content and digital strategy.
They continue to deliver incredible results with their campaigns because they underpin their approach with sound SEO expertise and have some of the brightest minds in the industry. I’m excited about the number of large global brands and homegrown SMEs who have recognised this talent and chosen to work with Stickyeyes, year after year.”
Mark said: “Having worked in search and digital marketing more broadly for almost 10 years, I was really looking for an agency that recognised the ever-present nature of digital and its interconnectedness with wider marketing and business strategy.
With Stickyeyes’ impressive track record, insights-led approach and commitment to investing in exceptional talent, I’ve found exactly that. Add to this the supportive framework of the wider IPG network which offers access to data, tools and people who would simply be out of reach for most other businesses and it became a pretty irresistible proposition”.

We're also due to announce a record-breaking end-of-year for new staff recruitment as we continue to expand our client list which includes LG, Hertz, ghd, MBNA and Kroger.
