MRM Meteorite has appointed VCCP new business director Steve Garside to head up its business development and marketing function.
Garside joined VCCP 18 months ago from Kitcatt Nohr. Prior to that, he ran new business at Pulse Group, the agency which is sprearheaded by the late Mike Spicer.
Reporting to MRM Meteorite chair and chief creative officer Nicky Bullard, Garside will be responsible for developing new business opportunities and leading the agency’s marketing and external comms strategy.
Bullard said: “Steve joining is one of the most important hires of our year. His experience is fantastic as is his new business nous. But best of all he is as fiercely ambitious for the agency as we are.”
Garside added: “There is little doubt in my mind that MRM Meteorite is very much the place to be at the moment – and when Nicky Bullard, Olly Foot and Matt Conner want to speak to you, you have to listen. There’s so much talent here, and I can’t wait to begin telling the world about it.”
