As Head of New Business & Marketing, Freedman will work with leaders across House 337’s capabilities – advertising & comms, social & content, fashion & lifestyle, customer experience, AI & innovation and sport – to engage the agency’s full set of resources in the service of driving new business and sustained growth.

Lucy joins a strong team, including Lauren Estwick, recently hired to drive sales and marketing across Sport, as well as Steph Dixon, Abraham Onimole and Hilary Watson, another new joiner as New Business Manager focussed on government.

During Freedman’s two years at Digitas, the agency won clients, including BTEE, Crocs, Subway, and Norwegian Cruise Lines, bringing in briefs that span CRM, media, and digital advertising.

Freedman previously worked at The Beyond Collective for five years, rising from Marketing Manager at Above+Beyond to Business Development Director across the full micro-network.

Commenting on her appointment, Freedman said: “The truly collective approach to creativity at House 337 is so refreshing and exciting.

“The agency has all the ingredients in place: the clients, the work and the talent, and I’m looking forward to working with this brilliant team to propel House 337 to the next stage of its growth.”

Phil Fearnley, Group Chief Executive Officer of House 337, said: “We have waited to find the right candidate for us. Lucy has a brilliant track record; she totally understands the world we inhabit and the changing dynamics of the market.

“We are delighted we could bring her in to build our increasingly powerful new business and marketing function as we look to grow substantially in the coming years.”
