The hire is part of ELVIS’ ongoing efforts to grow its team in order to effectively deliver on its mission to use unexpected and unforgettable creativity to help people and brands grow in a better way.
Price joins ELVIS from digital agency Amigo Partnership, where he was Senior Strategist, working with a variety of clients across sport, finance, hospitality and B2B. As part of the role, Price oversaw the development of a completely new brand framework for sports media brand Livescore.
In his new position at ELVIS, Price will play an instrumental role at the agency, helping to drive growth from existing clients and through new business.
He will lead strategy for pillar client PepsiCo, tasked with identifying and maximising growth opportunities.
Price will report to Strategy Director, Camilla Yates.
Prior to joining Amigo Partnership in 2020, Price held strategy roles at agencies including Saatchi & Saatchi, TBWA, Ogilvy and HeyHuman.
During his time at TBWA, he oversaw a project for charity Naz & Matt Foundation, aiming to encourage parents of LGBT+ kids to ‘come out’ to their communities and create new norms.
Camilla Yates, Strategy Director, ELVIS, said: “Jed has real strategic pedigree, having worked at a number of great agencies in the past.
“His varied background has given him a diverse set of skills and approaches, perfect for applying to our integrated, idea-led way of working.
