CRM agency Armadillo has appointed former Havas Helia planning director Fiona Craig as strategy director to spearhead client strategy and leading and direct the agency’s planning team.
The move follows the appointment of Armadillo’s first digital design director Rob Pellow in the summer and the management buyout in February.
The agency’s client include McDonald’s, Disney and Hotels.com.
Craig worked in planning and strategy roles for a range of businesses including Redtag, Friends Life and Sun Life before joining Havas Helia in April 2016.
Armadillo chief executive James Ray said: “We’ve always seen the value in investing in brilliant strategy and, with the rapid growth trajectory of Armadillo, we needed to bring someone in who works well in a fast-paced, dynamic environment and can push the boundaries of success with their strategic knowledge.
“Fiona ticked all the boxes and her enthusiasm and drive for progression perfectly matches the ethos of Armadillo. We very much look forward to Fiona’s involvement and input into the business.”
Craig added: “Armadillo is an independent agency with big ambitions and the expertise to make huge strides, I am really excited to be heading up the planning team to help the business thrive and grow in a period of such great potential.”
